Hm, that seems to be guarded by the "globallistmem" cache in mod_slotmem_shm...
So I am probably wrong about this race.

On Windows, "globallistmem" is not inherited (forked), hence the
shm_attach() path is taken, so we can't use anonymous SHMs anyway...

How about the generation in the filename? Windows only?
