This requires SHMConfig, which is a security Bad Thing.  Many of the
things accessible through synclient are moving to work with syndaemon so
we don't need to enable a bunch of insecure shared memory.  Could you
make your patch work with syndaemon too? 

wgrant was working on this, and he can correct me if it is the case (but
I don't think it is) that syndaemon actually still would want SHMConfig.
