Shared Memory Errors in Standalone BOINC Applications

Seeing an "error" message in stderr.out along the lines of the following
Can't set up shared mem: -1
is not unusual when running a BOINC client standalone. As a matter of fact, it is not an error, it is the expected behavior.

This occurs because the client is attempting to communicate with the BOINC manager, but is not being run under the manager. So, don't panic.
