Default login.conf memoryuse not working

I am trying to set a memory limit so that any process using more then the limit I set gets killed or otherwise not allowed to allocate any more memory.

I followed the instructions on

edited /etc/login.conf

In the default class i changed

then run
cap_mkdb /etc/login.conf

I can still run processes that are using more then 150MB memory and nothing happens.

What did I do wrong?

Im running FreeBSD 6.0-RELEASE
