Since it's happening for root (all users), it won't be in your user shell configuration files, so check /etc/profile, and all the files in /etc/profile.d. Maybe something you installed dropped a .sh file in there or something.

(you mentioned /etc/profile.d/limits.conf... that's hardly an appropriate place for a .conf file, it's for shell scripts and /etc/security/limits.conf is only for PAM distros. There's no in there by default)
I'm wondering if it was an odd build I used that caused the issue. I tried to take an easy route for my first install and used sboui to do some installs, perhaps it was an odd build or script that did it. Regardless, I reinstalled Slackware today with 14.2. I wanted to set up some partitions differently and bypass this issue.

As for using /etc/profile, I was trying all kinds of different things to get it back, so I was experimenting after trying everything I read. I learned a lot through this experience though.
