Just to clarify it finally. You state that there is a big difference 
between system /etc/rc.d scripts (without .sh) which all runs in the 
single shell (as I remember it was) and /usr/local/etc/rc.d scripts 
(without .sh) which nowdays runs in the subshells, each one in its own?

/usr/bin/limits is the problem there because it change limits for whole 
shell, not for command which just invoked. If all scripts runs in the same 
shell, all subsequential of them will be affected.
