I've no idea what sets ulimit's limits. But that won't stop me from
suggesting some possibilities. :-)
- ulimit is a bash builtin, so you might want to look at bash's code.
If bash is the problem, you might run under ash or another shell, though
not launched from bash.
- One possibility is that Windows limits the numbers of open files.
Have you looked into that?
