	Thanks for the advice Tom.  The following happened:

-> ./ipcclean       
ipcclean: nothing removed

-> postmaster -D /home/postgres/data/
IpcMemoryCreate: shmget failed (Invalid argument) key=5432010, size=144, permission=700
This type of error is usually caused by an improper
shared memory or System V IPC semaphore configuration.
[SNIP: Same as previous message]

	Anything else that could solve this?

== Sean.
