Well, the fact that it uses shared memory is an uninteresting
implementation detail --- at least, it's uninteresting until you run
out.  When/if that happens, ISTM the error message and HINT are plenty
good enough to tell you what to do about it.  If we tried to document
every possible error message and appropriate corrective action for same
the docs would become bloated to the point of unreadability.  So to me
the question is why this particular case deserves a paragraph of its own.
