Problem lowering then raising file descriptor limit

 If you lower then attempt to raise the file descriptor limit on bash (as a 
non-root user) it won't let you. It should let you raise it back to the level 
it was when the shell started. Csh on the other hand correctly allows you to.

On bash:

address@hidden:~ > ulimit -a
core file size (blocks)     0
data seg size (kbytes)      unlimited
file size (blocks)          unlimited
max locked memory (kbytes)  unlimited
max memory size (kbytes)    unlimited
open files                  1024
pipe size (512 bytes)       8
stack size (kbytes)         unlimited
cpu time (seconds)          unlimited
max user processes          4094
virtual memory (kbytes)     unlimited


address@hidden:~ > ulimit -n 256
address@hidden:~ > ulimit -a


core file size (blocks)     0
data seg size (kbytes)      unlimited
file size (blocks)          unlimited
max locked memory (kbytes)  unlimited
max memory size (kbytes)    unlimited
open files                  256
pipe size (512 bytes)       8
stack size (kbytes)         unlimited
cpu time (seconds)          unlimited
max user processes          4094
virtual memory (kbytes)     unlimited


address@hidden:~ > ulimit -n 1024
bash: ulimit: cannot modify limit: Operation not permitted


 On csh:

chess /home/dav> limit
cputime         unlimited
filesize        unlimited
datasize        unlimited
stacksize       unlimited
coredumpsize    0 kbytes
