Subject: grsec Resource logging

I'm playing around with grsecurity. Now I get lots of messages like this:

grsec: denied resource overstep by requesting 7499776 for RLIMIT_MEMLOCK against limit 32768 for 
/usr/sbin/ntpd[ntpd:8525] uid/euid:123/123 gid/egid:123/123, parent /sbin/init[init:1] uid/euid:0/0 

As far as I understand, ntpd is trying to allocate more memory than it is allowed due to resource 
limits. The limit seems to be 32M while ntpd tries to allocate 7G (!) of RAM?

What is wrong here?
