Then, simply logging in on another VT gives you the new PAM limits.

I understand that the text doesn't match your case.

True, I've decided to place a file in /etc/security/limits.d/ instead of
messing with limits.conf. (multiple configuration files instead of a

I just noticed that the debconf template is ambiguous. Will change that.

Thanks for pointing out this problem.
