Cool, can you patch it so that it'll check first whether it can do that, 
before it does that? We get users reporting problems when ulimit fails. I 
don't have an access to Solaris, so if you can fix that, that would be great. 

I guess it needs to check the output of 'ulimit -c' and do the decision based 
on that. But I'll leave it to you to get the right logic.
