You're right understand what I want. And no matter how it will be
realized. It's interesting but you said practically the same idea as I
made in my application short time ago. In every message I put the name
of SHM object and kill this object after some timeout despite of it was
object processed or not.
I'm waiting new versions in anticipation ! :-)
