Subject:   I'm confused about the limits command

I have not been able to get the limits command to allow me to raise
my memoryuse-cur value.  As an example:

b@vader-p2 /luke/home/bob> limits -m
Resource limits (current):
  memoryuse-max       65536 kb
  memoryuse-cur       32768 kb

As I understand it, this should allow me increase my memoryuse-cur
to 64MB.  However, when I do:

bob@vader-p2 /luke/home/bob> limits -m 64M
Resource limits (current):
  memoryuse           65536 kb

and then again:

bob@vader-p2 /luke/home/bob> limits -m
Resource limits (current):
  memoryuse-max       65536 kb
  memoryuse-cur       32768 kb

I'm still stuck with only 32MB.  I am running pdksh, though I've
tried this on tcsh and csh as well.  This is on 2.2-stable as of
7/5/97.

Please help!  What am I missing here?

Thanks,
