It looks to me like they are trying to use X shared memory and lack access. 
I see the exact same message on my stock potato machine. I thought that only
root could use MIT-SHM, but maelstrom is suid. Perhaps it drops permissions
too soon. However, if it cannot use the shared memory, it should fall back
to normal X operations for portability.
