Actually, after spending a lot of time on it, I found the answer. For those
that might need to know this, pay attention: =)

* edit /etc/security/limits.conf and add:
"*               soft    core            2000000
*               hard    core            2000000"

(if you go over this, it doesnt seem to work, though I didnt try as close as
2000001.... this is more than big enough anyways.)

* edit /etc/pam.d/login and add:
"session required /lib/security/"

Log into the server over telnet and it works. I'm working on finding a version
of SSH that will support PAM based authentication so I can start the MUD
up over SSH.
