Right. See http://old.nabble.com/limits.conf-not-working...-td33702428.html

Is there really no way to let the limits.conf limits take effect? I 
cannot think of a reason why that ever would be the wrong thing to do. 
Having a way to override that limit is convenient, but the default 
surely should be the limit configured for the user. Seems to me that 
start-stop-daemon is introducing gratuitous complexity here.
