Most of session.c runs with user privs in privsep mode. if you need to raise
ulimits, you may need to raise the hard-limits for sshd itself. The last patch
may help if you are not using privsep.

There are two issues here: 1) That all pam_limits calls are happening in the
server process, rather than the child (this is the greater problem) 2) the
ulimit calls are happening as non-root.

2) is arguably not a bug.
