i think you'll need to add your user and the security variable you want as 

@user(whatever that is)  <type> refers to the hard (lower) or soft (higher) 
level of setting for the item, <item> refers to the kind of option you wish 
to control, and the <value> is obvous.

for me i have my memlock set to the following:
@root(tut tut !)      -       memlock    750000

don't forget the "open files" limit if you do big projects.

@root       soft            nolimit    4096
@root      hard            nolimit    8192
