Hmm.. yeah, the question is - why/how come?
I used to get this often when I run vservers with ulimits set, it seems
that there is something wrong with counting number of processes, it looks
I've got limit of 20 processes, I've got 5 and when I try to fork 6th
I get fork: Resource tempor...
I raise the limit to 120... still not good
I raise the limit to 220, it works ok now.
But then I do ps aux|wc -l.. and it's roughly equall to the limit the
system tries to enforce.
Soo, it seems like it's counting all the processes inside vserver, or
something like that.
