Have you done any actual investigation --- like looked at the output
of ipcs -m -a to see whether there are old segments lying around?

The ipcclean script is not very bright, and in particular I doubt it
knows about all the formats that different platforms' versions of
ipcs produce.  So it may just be failing to recognize what has to be

The "Permission denied" error suggests that you may be trying to run
Postgres under a different userid than you were before.  If so, you'll
have to delete the old segments as that other user, or as root.
