That would be from the gdkrgb code (used by gdk-pixbuf).  Quoting from
  #define N_IMAGES 6

GdkRGB tries to create the fastest GdkImage for transfering data to the X
server.  For programs running on the same machine, this is shared memory

If possible, it is probably best to increase the limit on the number of
shared memory segments allowed on your system.
