You are right. I just checked my XWin.log and it again said

 MIT-SHM extension disabled due to lack of kernel support

also ipcs gives me

 Bad system call

I start my cygserver as a service and a process listing shows that it's
still running, hmmmmmmm.....

When I start cygserver after a reboot from a bash shell I get the
following (cygwin1.dll and cygserver both from the Jul 17 snapshot):

12:19 PM [505]> cygserver --version
cygserver: (cygwin) 1.10
API version 1.5.11(0.116/4/1)-( 20040717 00:34:52SNP
Copyright 2001, 2002, 2003 Red Hat, Inc.
Compiled on Jul 17 2004
Default configuration file is /etc/cygserver.conf
12:21 PM [506]> cygserver -e -l 7 -d
cygserver: daemon starting up
cygserver: /netrel/src/cygwin-snapshot-20040717-1/winsup/cygserver/, line 112: starting all queue submission loops
assertion "!_hThread" failed: file "/netrel/src/cygwin-snapshot-20040717-1/winsup/cygserver/", line 321

The only good thing, my gnome apps doesn't show the MapViewOfFileEx failure.

Reverting cygwin1.dll and cygserver back to 1.5.10-3, cygserver works
just fine, but now my gnome apps show again the MapViewOfFileEx failure
