[sudo-users] file ulimit not set correctly

you are right. I have set a too big file ulimit in /etc/security/limits.
AIX handels it as unlimited. command "ulimit -f" says "unlimited".
In my opinion it would be a nice feature, if the ulimit is set higher than
allowed erroneous, that sudo evaluates it as us unlimited (such as AIX) or
as the maximum value 2G - 512blocks (1 TB), but not as zero.

According to the documentation I can find, the max value for the
file size limit is 2147483647 and the units are 512 byte blocks.
What does is the "ulimit -a" output if you run "su - falkenbe"?
