coredumpsize for csh mysteriously reset to zero

About six months ago, one of our Tru64 UNIX servers (an ES45 system runningRelease 5.1b) was rebooted during a maintenance outage. Afterward, the csh parameter 'coredumpsize' was set to zero (0). Only the csh limit was changed, /bin/sh and Korn shell users were unaffacted and remained at 'unlimited'. We cured this after discovering the change by addding the line

limit coredumpsize unlimited

to the /etc/csh.login file.

What I need to find out (and have not been able to find anything to explain it) is: where else in the system could the coredumpsize be changed, but only for /bin/csh?
