As mlw comments, that is probably not really the source of the
performance issue.  However, you should be able to hack it if you
want to check.  A standalone backend just malloc()s what would otherwise
be the shared memory area.  As a first approximation you could just fire
up a standalone backend and see if it seems any faster.
