True.  The ulimit is probably stopping it dumping core.

I think it is the TLS support of pam_ldap that is causing the core
dump.  I ran saslauthd in a debugger and it seg faulted in which is part of openssl.

The interesting thing is that all my other pam related apps arn't
dumping core or crashing and they are all using TLS to talk to the LDAP
server via pam_ldap.  So it must be some interaction between pam, LDAP
and saslauthd that is causing the issue.
