  The trick is the allocated memory must be sharable between multiple
heavy weight processes, not just threads. For POSIX shared memory, it's
usually implemented as a flat file on disk, and to share the "memory
segment", you're mostly just reading and writing a disk file. Malloc()
doesn't usually produce something that can be shared between processes,
or under AmigOS4 is everything a thread of the core OS like an RTOS ?
