SubjectRe: Problem with 2.4.0-test9-pre6 seems to be SHM

Whoa now?! 16 shm segments? ....if that's true something is terribly
wrong with either X or the kernel's handling of shm .... that's scary.
this
is currently what i'm seeing after only 30 min of X
------ Shared Memory Status --------
segments allocated 2008
pages allocated 13842
pages resident 12281
pages swapped 1120
Swap performance: 5517 attempts 1120 successes
------ Semaphore Status --------
used arrays = 0
allocated semaphores = 0
------ Messages: Status --------
allocated queues = 0
used headers = 0
used space = 0 bytes

It increases every time i execute the command ipcs -u
i am not even running the amount of apps i normally do. This seems to
be a
leak, but i'm not sure if it's from X or the kernel. I'm leaning
towards X
at this point. But the real problem i have with is the kernel is
crashing
when the requests for shm segments goes over the max for a while.
