[nycbug-talk] How to raise openfiles ulimit in FreeBSD?

I'm trying to raise the per-user ulimit for openfiles. (FreeBSD)
/etc/login.conf defines it unlimited and sysctl kern.maxfilesperproc=11095.

But when I login as a normal user, the openfiles is 1024,
whereas I get 11095 as root. 

How this value is determined? (I checked my bashrc.)
