    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.
    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
    when the requests for shm segments goes over the max for a while.
