ERROR:set_share_mode shmops->shm_alloc fail!

We're getting lots of error messages like "ERROR:set_share_mode
shmops->shm_alloc fail!" in our logs.  I suspect this might be the root
cause of lots of other problems we've been seeing - like the "del *.*"
problem I reported a couple of days ago, and network installed software
like Word closing without reporting any errors.  These errors are always
preceded by another error related to locking shmem_sysv.c.  Here is one

[1999/03/11 08:19:00, 0] locking/shmem_sysv.c:shm_alloc(214)
  ERROR shm_alloc : alloc of 132 bytes failed
[1999/03/11 08:19:00, 0] locking/locking_shm.c:shm_set_share_mode(435)
  ERROR:set_share_mode shmops->shm_alloc fail!

I've attached a full log from this morning to give a broader view of
what's going on.  If anyone has some insight on this, let me know.
We're running 2.0.0 on an Ultra 2 in Solaris 7.
