Bug still present in squeeze and testing.

However, the value of memory_limit in /etc/php5/cli/php.ini appears to still be checked by suhosin. In fact, that the stock /etc/php5/cli/php.ini contains memory_limit=-1 is causing sohosin to generate many log messages.

(See http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=566609 and  http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=582384)

We would need to confirm that ulimit is truly the new functioning memory-limiting mechanism and have php5-suhosin be modified to reflect that.
