core dump file size exceeds limit with ulimit -f unlimited.

Hi all,
I have asked same question on mailing list, but couldn't find any useful answers, so I am re-posting it here, hope its not considered as cross-posting.

for ulimit -c 10 -f 10, the core dump size is 10240,
but for ulimit -c 10 -f unlimited core dump file size is 12288. This seems to be incorrect behavior.
Has anyone seen such problem? this problem was discussed at few places, but i couldn't find anything specific on this problem?

If someone can point out sources, where i can look for code related to same?


dump, ulimit
