In my case, I am doing the change because of Samba. When you run
tesparm, the lastest versions of Samba give the following warning:
rlimit_max: rlimit_max (1024) below minimum Windows limit (16384)
When I add the line "ulimit -n 1024" to /etc/profile, the warning
disappears, even after a reboot.
So, this certainly works for processes running as root.
But you are right in that it will probably depend on the particular user
