In sys.c:set_user() we see

if (atomic_read(&new_user->processes) >=
current->rlim[RLIMIT_NPROC].rlim_cur &&
new_user != &root_user) {
free_uid(new_user);
return -EAGAIN;
}

which was added in patch-2.6.0-test2.
No doubt this causes your problem.

You might check what values these variables have for you.
