  Limiting the data size doesn't work

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I'm using Ubuntu 15.10 dev with libpam-modules 1.1.8-3.1ubuntu3 and if
  I'm limiting the data size with "ulimit -d 8192" and executing for
  example the testcase from this ticket (
  https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/glibc/+bug/1462853 ) I'm
  noticing that the data size can still be more than 8 MiB (in this case
  ~2 GiB).
