This is a problem that happens when a new profile is created and the
latest flash-plugin (installed from repo).  The crash happens after
logging into a Gmail account.

(Gecko:819): Gdk-WARNING **: shmget failed: error 28 (No space left on device)
/usr/lib/firefox-3.0.1/run-mozilla.sh: line 131:   819 Segmentation
fault      "$prog" ${1+"$@"}

Apparently the Flash plugin doesn't release the shared memory that it

After I run this script the problem goes away.   Is anyone else
experiencing this?

ID=$(ipcs -m | awk '{print $2}')

  for id in $ID
   ipcrm -m $id
