Hm, that may be a good news for the slotmem_shm case where we always
(try to )remove the file before the SHM is destroyed, so that's in the

I already tried to invert both for PR 58024, but it was before
introducing the generation number.
So it may work with the full monty (already proposed to the OP, wait and see).
