It would be interesting to compile it, put it in /usr/local/lib/ and add
the export line 

	export LD_PRELOAD=/usr/local/lib/shim.so

into the LDM login command or perhaps /etc/profile.  This should push this
hack to every thin client.  It sounds like that should relieve people's
problems with thin clients running out of memory.
