extensions (shared mem, security)

looking at the startup log, I don't see the X-Security extension being initialized.  Is it not supported?

Also, perhaps more important for me is the message:

2009-12-15 10:39:27 XFree86-Bigfont extension local-client optimization disabled
 due to lack of shared memory support in the kernel

NT supports shared memory objects and I thought cygwin uses shared memory for cross-process communication.  So what's this about X not knowing about the shared memory support?
