Bug description:
Binary package hint: etoys

** SRU **

In the development release of Ubuntu, this has been fixed by upgrading to a later version of squeak-vm with SHM support. As is, etoys cannot be started via the "etoys" command or from the menu; the user must edit /usr/games/etoys manually. 

$ etoys

{the application should not start and a usage message is displayed}
{proper behavior: etoys main window is displayed}

This has little regression potential since etoys does not work as is, no other applications rdepend on it, and this is a isolated change to a single script. 

Bzr branch attached. 

** END SRU **

After attempting to run a fresh installation of Etoys from the Ubuntu repository, it fails to launch. The message "unknown option: -xshm"  is left in the terminal.
