  - run "ulimit -a", you probably have a ulimit set, paste results.

Here is what I see.
msimons@star:~$ ulimit -a
core file size        (blocks, -c) 0
data seg size         (kbytes, -d) unlimited
file size             (blocks, -f) unlimited
max locked memory     (kbytes, -l) unlimited
max memory size       (kbytes, -m) unlimited
open files                    (-n) 1024
pipe size          (512 bytes, -p) 8
stack size            (kbytes, -s) 8192
cpu time             (seconds, -t) unlimited
max user processes            (-u) 256
virtual memory        (kbytes, -v) unlimited

  "-f" is the maximum size a single file is allowed to grow to...

  - If that is the case check out your login scripts for a setting, or

  If not let me know, and I'll look into other possibilities.
