Can you guys post the output of:

$ ipcs -bmo | awk -- '/^m/ {num++;total+=$7*$8}; END {print num,(total/4096)}'

taken while you are experiencing the problem. The first number is the total
number of shared memory segments currently active and the second should be the
total number of shared memory pages in use. Thanks,
