I have been having difficulty getting firefox to work, so I built it with
DEBUG and this error shows up when starting with "$ firefox -safe-mode" =>
"shmget failed: error 28 (No space left on device)"

What "Shared Memory" setting do I need to change so as to get rid of this
error? Alternatively, is this a mozilla bug? shmall looks sufficiently large
to me, and setting it to "unlimited" seems a bit risky.

My Shared Memory settings ATM on 4G physical RAM:
$  ipcs -M
shmmax:    536870912
shmmin:            1
shmmni:          192
shmseg:          128
shmall:       131072
