Unfortunately it doesn't work as desired.  In contrast to Linux, changing
the limit to a higher limit doesn't produce an error.  The new nested job
has just a higher limit, while the limit of the parent job is enforced.
Therefore, just adding a new nested job is not good.

Apart from tha I noticed the call order was wrong  Adding the process to
the job should only occur *after* all other calls succeeded.

I thought not and I already had written a lengthy explanation... which
I spare you with, because the code has to be rewritten anyway...
