Is the message literally as this ?
If so, it is not a message generated by DeleGate. It can be one
from your shell forking the filter program or so.

Unix systems provide system calls to limit available resouces.
Each shell provide a command to control it; try "limit" in csh,
"ulimit -a" in bash, and so on.
