In fact, no.  ulimit is stupid, that's all, in that it changes both
soft and hard limit when going down.  But if as root you change the
hard limit to 2048 without touching the soft one then start a user
shell, you'll see that you can raise your limit with ulimit -n 2048,
but if you ever reduce it you can't raise it again.

(t)csh limit changes only the soft limit unless you add -h.

  OG.
