[squid-users] Unable to increase max_filedescr

I'm running 2.6STABLE (yes, I know it's ancient) and I'm unable to increase max_filedescr beyond 16384.

# grep max_file /etc/squid/squid.conf
max_filedesc    32768

# ulimit -n

# squidclient -p 80 mgr:info | grep 'Maximum number'
        Maximum number of file descriptors:   16384

I have restarted squid, re-logged back in, etc.  I'm able to modify it to be anything less than 16384.  Any idea what is preventing me from scaling beyond 16384?  This is RHEL5.
