Default Shared memory error on RHEL5

I'm using an older card (GeForce FX 5200) for a dual head display. When the driver is built or inserted I get the following error:

"shared memory test failes (invalid argument)"

I confirmed that CONFIG_SYSVIPC is enabled in the kernel -

# uname -r
# grep SYSVIPC /boot/config-2.6.18-238.9.1.el5

Shared memory is mounted and available -

# mount | grep shm
tmpfs on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw)

Is the "invalid argument" part of the error telling me something different? This is a stock RHEL 5.6 kernel and I would think the driver could insert fine.

Any ideas? Thanks.
