Wierd PAM limits.conf behavior

The changes i make in /etc/security/limits.conf no longer work, because at login some wierd limits are set (even if i comment out everything in limits.conf).

core file size        (blocks, -c) 0
data seg size         (kbytes, -d) unlimited
file size             (blocks, -f) unlimited
max locked memory     (kbytes, -l) 25000
max memory size       (kbytes, -m) unlimited
open files                    (-n) 1024
pipe size          (512 bytes, -p) 8
stack size            (kbytes, -s) 8192
cpu time             (seconds, -t) 600
max user processes            (-u) 10
virtual memory        (kbytes, -v) unlimited
any ideas ?
