I've a feeling that we might have systemd on that box, so for anyone
else with the same problem:

I making sure that the following is present in the .service file will do
the trick:


And of course, restarting. I've been caught out by this a fair few
times--the limits in /etc/security/limits.conf only get set on login (or
speficially, via PAM) so don't get applied from systemd. But of course,
they /do/ get applied when you log in via ssh, hence it's easy to get
thrown off.
