Windows server?  We don't need no stinkin windows server.

No really, my Ubuntu 18 board has no display so I only ssh into it.

My tests on limits (requiring the reboot for the windows manager to
pickup the limits file) was on an Ubuntu 20 box.

So I did not totally test your situation on Ubuntu 18.  Sorry.

In terms of the vncserver file in /etc/pam.d - it is there because you
added vncserver according to your notes.

Do note that there is another possibility.  The installation might
have had a bug in it that has never been patched.
