This seems fine (on FreeBSD it's "limits"):
Resource limits (current):
cputime infinity secs
filesize infinity kB
datasize 524288 kB
stacksize 65536 kB
coredumpsize infinity kB
memoryuse infinity kB
memorylocked infinity kB
sbsize infinity bytes
vmemoryuse infinity kB

Postfix does have this set to 50MB:
mailbox_size_limit = 51200000
..which is how large the LDA log was. Very odd, because the issue was
writing the LOG, not writing to the mailbox. So, mailbox_size_limit
must restrict the size of whatever is forked off of mailbox_command if
I'm understanding it correctly. I'll ask further about that on the
potsfix mailing list, but it sounds to me like that's it. Thanks much
for your help!
