whenever I select from one of the new monitoring virtual tables I receive
Statement failed, SQLCODE = -902
operating system directive open failed
In isql, the error is printed just after the headers. No records are
In the firebird.log I get this:

Cannot initialize the shared memory region
Tested with both beta(?) 2 and rc 1. OS is Ubuntu 7.10. Firebird is
SuperServer 184.108.40.20635 installed with the script provided in
the tar.gz package. Database was backed up and restored
properly. ODS version is 11.1. Problem only happens with
monitoring tables and everything else looks OK.
