This command fixed it for me (Ubuntu 8.10, etoys 3.0.1916+svn132-2)::

  sed -i -e "s/-xshm//" /usr/games/etoys

The bug should probably belong into the "squeakvm" package: it's
squeakvm complaining about the "-xshm" option, although the usage text
says it's supported. (And indeed it works in the Debian version.)
