With the patch applied, it is happy again, thanks. But I cannot seem to
find the two RLIMITs in question either on my SuSE Linux 7.3 system. It
might very well be that I'm a moron not looking in the right places

I would not justify a 4.0.4 with this, when 4.0.3 as you pointed out not
have been announced yet. There's of course factors like CVS that have to
be taken into question, which I am unaware of.
