You haven't told us anything about what operating system you
are using, what your program does, or....

Basically, this means that GTK+ was unable to allocate a shared
memory segment. That's all. The two likely cases for failure are generally:

 - You've hit the total limit on your system
 - You've hit the per-process limit (unlikely with 1.2.9)

You probably can run 'ipcs' to list your current allocated segments.
