    Ah, but it does matter ! We break compatibility with other systems (and
    our manpages, and possibly standards) if we don't mark the segment
    IPC_PRIVATE upon removal -

    Marking the segment IPC_PRIVATE allows its continued use by those alread
    connected to the segment (until the count drops to zero, and its
    deleted), but *prevents* new users from attaching to the segment.

    I started down this road because we weren't marking the segment, was
    delighted to see it done in pre3 - but it seemed like the setting
    wasn't always done ;-{
