I had to remove all "limit" options after i noticed they get=20
created but not destroyed. Had to reboot (or in a few cases i=20
could reload module) to fix it. I dont know why this happens
but i believe i read about a similar thing on 5.x so i chalked it up
as another bug that will be fixed soon.

I run FreeBSD 4.9-RELEASE and couple of 4.9-PRERELEASE.
Both have this issue, as far as i remember.
