I've been adding a lot of stuff to my X start up script, and I've strted
 getting 'cat: No such process' errors, followed by '/kernel: execve: failed
 to allocate string space'. The cat: errors are from a shell script called
 several times at startup and occasionally later. The script seems to work
 later on - I must be running out of some temporary resource, but my shell
 limits all seem OK and I've set maxusers 30 (I'm not sure exactly how many
 processes that is, but I've had over 100.)

So what eactly am I running out of, and how can I get rid of the errors?

Thanks, Michael.
