I think adding -f would do it, but I also think you're barking up the wrong
tree.  You got an shm error.  What does "ipcs -Mm" say?  (That command is
for Lion; it may not work on earlier releases.)

FWIW I use wireshark and do not see the X error.  Which X11 are you using?
 Leopard, SL, Lion, XQuartz (version?), MacPorts (version?)?
