The registry setting is still in the latest snapshot. The latest
snapshot is quicker to use shared memory when it runs out of memory or
when a large chunk of memory is requested. Corinna's recent changes to
shared memory handling in the snapshot have made using shared memory for
this purpose more attractive so we're using the same shared memory
settings in malloc as a normal UNIX system.
