Follow-up Comment #4, bug #18396 (project make):

I experienced an converse effect.  I could run a program (kpdf) from shell,
but it would crash if started from make.

I used a large hard limit (~1GB) for the stack size and around 100MB as soft
limit (used it for a scientific app).  My machine has 2 GB Ram.

kpdf fails to start a helper thread with this message:

  QThread::start: thread creation error: Cannot allocate memory

The problem seems to be that make ups the soft limit to the hard limit and
runs its childs with this setting.

One can certainly argue, that kpdf behaves disadvantageous, however, make
should not change the user's specified environment.
