Package: jackd
Version: 0.118+svn3796-2
Severity: normal

The following message appears when starting jackd:

Memory locking is unlimited - this is dangerous. You should probably alter the 
     @audio   -  memlock    unlimited
in your /etc/limits.conf to read:
     @audio   -  memlock    3046545

I seem not to have such a file installed. Instead debconf has created
/etc/security/limits.d/audio.conf which contains the given line.
If it wasn't for the fact that my changes there may get lost on the
next update, I would suggest to just fix the notification message.
Where am I supposed to change this setting?

Second, if it is dangerous jackd shouldn't be configured by default
with unlimited memory locking in the first place.

Best regards,
