Uh, no, I'm looking at my laptop. Curious that yours has no reference
to the other file.

You're forgetting the point I made that the first complete set of shmem
settings wins. If we could change the settings on the fly after that,
all this would be a whole lot easier, but the OSX kernel locks them down
BTW, I dunno if you read awk at all, but that awk command effectively
says "print lines that contain = and do not contain #". You didn't try
appending comments to the setting lines in your file did you?
