It turns out that on MacOS 10.6 the default maximum SYSV shared memory size is about 2 Mbytes, too small even for the default MIDAS SYSTEM 
event buffer.

Svn revision 4807 implements POSIX shared memory, which does not seem to have such a small size limit and makes it the default on MacOS.

This update fixes the last issue that I am aware of for running MIDAS on MacOS.

svn rev 4807
