Are you sure -jX had any effect give your low RLIMIT_NOFILE value?
`dccm -d` creates a system log message that includes the effective

324 seems very low. 

Every flavor of UNIX-like system seems to have its own way to set
the per-process and per-user resource limits.  /etc/login.conf is
fairly popular.
