cdrecord: Invalid argument. shmget failed

Did anybody try out to burn a CD using cdrecord on an alpha?

I just connected my Yamaha 4/4/16S on my AlphaStation 200 4/166 and
tried to burn a CD with this, but all I get (when trying to burn or
blank a CD-RW with normal or dummy test mode) is the message
 /usr/bin/cdrecord: Invalid argument. shmget failed

Any idea, what this means?  Is this a software problem or a hardware
problem.  I had some trouble with the writer on my i386 system (seemed
to write, but created CD was empty, but all without a message), so I
wanted to try the writer connected to the Alpha (i.e. on a different
SCSI system), but now only this message.

BTW: Reading CDs with the yamaha works and cdrecord -scanbus also does
its job:

This is a potato system with cdrecord 3:1.8-2.
