  I think that's too subtle, and the security aspect was covered by
having a LocalConnection ReadOnly option. I sure thought I added docs on
LCShmKey when I rewrote the manual for the last release.

  All this does is let one specify a shared memory key, which is truly
only used for compatibility with the proprietary player. By default
without this, Gnash picks it's own key, and doesn't worry about

  System stuff, you shouldn't have to worry about any of them. If you
want to be sure, a reboot will create the initial set, and you can store
the output of ipcs and compare it later to see what the new ones are.
