If httpd is configured to run as user ``nobody'', you'll get
errors claiming that: 
	
	shmctl: Invalid argument
	httpd: Could not set segment #XXX

Just do it!  Or if you can't, I'll provie an account on a HPUX machine

Run httpd as any other user - www, for instance.  And put it 
somewhere in the docs, preferably in a comment in httpd.con
