After replying to you, I tested the "solution" I gave you and it didn't 
work.

I found a working solution. I added the following line to /etc/profile:

ulimit -n 16384

This works as the general default setting. If you want to apply the 
setting to a particular user, you should add it to the .bash_profile 
file in the user's home directory.

I know it works because I just tested it and it survived the server's 
reboot. I ran "ulimit -a" and the new value was there.

Please excuse me for the involuntary mislead. I was pretty sure that it 
did work "once upon a time"...
