 <Dick> ankit: evolution-sharp is for talking to evolution-data-server,
 so other tools might be using it for that
 <dave_largo> and I thought semaphores were dynamic in 2.6 kernel, and
 were allocated as it needed them.
 <dave_largo> or is an issue of bumping up that /dev/shm file system?
 <Dick> dave_largo: i'll need to have a think about how to proceed

+Try this patch against 1.1.13 (should apply cleanly to svn head too.)
+With this, a mono process will delete the semaphore and shared files
+if it is the last one using them.  It will also cope with X servers
+disconnecting unexpectedly and Xlib calling exit().
+If the last mono process crashes it will still "leak" the semaphore
+and shared files, and the next mono process will reuse them as before.
