Why not use a "unlimit" command instead, i.e.:
if [ -x $EXEC -a -f $CONF ]; then
echo "Starting Dovecot..."
# We need mo' files
ulimit -n 8192
$EXEC -c $CONF
echo "Starting Dovecot failed."
I bumped into this too, with a limit of 64 (Solaris 7). Raising it, using
aforementioned method, to 1024 solved the problem for me. Alpha5 is running
smoothly, with outstanding performance.
