Bug reference:      6164
Logged by:          Kyle Fox
Email address:      kyle(dot)fox(at)gmail(dot)com
PostgreSQL version: 9.0
Operating system:   Mac OSX 10.6.8
Description:        Flashing dialog
Details: 

I used the installer to install Postgres 9.0 on my Mac, and now every 10
seconds a dialog message flashes and immediately disappears, and STEALS
FOCUS.

My computer is completely unusable because of the installer. How do I fix
this? I would like to uninstall postgres entirely.

Here's the output from the Console.app:

11-08-15 9:24:04 PM	Firewall[63]	postgres is listening from 0.0.0.0:5432

MDT HINT:  This error usually means that PostgreSQL's request for a shared
memory segment exceeded available memory or swap space. To reduce the
request size (currently 32587776 bytes), reduce PostgreSQL's shared_buffers
parameter (currently 3584) and/or its max_connections parameter (currently
103).

PostgreSQL documentation contains more information about shared memory
configuration.
