hm i have i.e

# If you set service_count=0, you probably need to grow this.
  #vsz_limit = 64M

in 10-master.conf

so whatever there is/was a warning in some default conf having your eyes
on this parameter

so i stay
there can only be starting defaults at clean new setups
and they might fail too, i.e if you have very small resources
so give warning is the only chance i see

but no flame , i changed so much that i havent any idea whats now is
default exactly

sorry i have enough resources so i dont care
unless i see a warning, basicly i trust in Timos code giving the right

but good that Timo mostly answers if you ask detailed
describe your resources and he or others might give recomands
testing your setup with different setups might also help find out for
you, whats best at your site

perhaps some basic resource examples should be in the wiki
