The shmem code works in a terminal server session with or without the patch.
Magnus had a different problem, probably permissions. Since I do not have a
non admin user (on a TS server) I disabled the win32_is_admin check.

It is my opinion that we should allow pg to run as Admin on Windows, at least 
with an override option. Services that run under a specified user are a headache
on Win32, because you need to store a password, and a lot of systems only have 
one user.

The decision is simple. If we want the shmem to be global on the machine we need 
the patch. I think we want that, but can not give an authoritative answer.

I think all agreed that this is good.
