Any chance of bumping the default to something a bit more reasonable? gtk apps and mplayer both complain about not being able to allocate shm with the default configuration, bumping it to 8192 makes everything happy.

Practically speaking, I would suggest to making the default limit
something like 1024 pages or 1/4 of the physical memory, what ever is
higher. Also helps for things like PostgreSQL.

The current default is 2048 on i386, so 1024 isn't going to be enough.
