The already mentioned shmget problem when launching postmaster:

FATAL 1:  ShmemCreate: cannot create region

concise reproducible example, if at all possible: 

simply launch postmaster, it dies immediately with the above error

If you know how this problem might be fixed, list the solution below:

I don't know a solution but I can say that I use successfully postgresql
since the 6.3, and I wanted to upgrade my 6.4.2 which worked very fine to
the 6.5.2 and I'd better have stayed in bed this morning... 

I havent yet tried to reduce the default shared memory usage with the -B
option. do you think this could significantly reduce the speed of the
database engine ?
