I have some more information on this now. I reinstalled my testserver
today. I started with a clean RHEL4 install. Then installed wine, and it
worked fine for my user. I also checked ulimit -a and it shows unlimited
virtual memory for my user. I did nothing to /etc/profile
or /etc/rc.local.

I then apt-get installed the k12ltsp EL packages. I ran the initialize
script and rebooted my server. Now wine does not work anymore, and
ulimit -a shows virtual memory limited to 600000.

So it would seem that the wine trouble is caused by someting pulled in
by the k12ltsp packages. But what? 

What in the k12ltsp packages sets virtual memory limit to 600000?
