so far I've been using kernels 2.4.32. I've upgraded to and I've noticed a something not right. TCP connection arent closed when user is over his limit for open connections (ulimit -n). In my previous kernel connections was new imedietly closed is user were above limit. Now however connectios are kept open until client site timeouts - so it might be forever open.
