No. RabbitMQ only ever *reports* on the FD limits it is seeing, it 
doesn't impose any more. And this code has not changed from 2.7.1 to 2.8.1.

Things to check:

* Have you genuinely raised the limit for the rabbitmq user? (sounds 
like you have)

* Is RabbitMQ actually running as the rabbitmq user?

* Have you restarted the server? (since ulimit is only checked on "login".

Cheers, Simon
