That is correct.

Unfortunately, these are my current settings:

options         SHMALL=1025
options         SHMMAX="(SHMMAXPGS*PAGE_SIZE+1)"
options         SHMMAXPGS=1025
options         SHMMIN=2
options         SHMMNI=256
options         SHMSEG=128

I can increase it more, but I think this is quite a ridiculous amount
of shared memory to be using.  Something must be wrong.

I am now searching for a way to disable the MIT-SHM extension in the X
server, but I think I may have to recompile.
