Re: constant variables are not always placed in shared memory

I think there are two reasons for my_strings not to be shared.

First, my_strings was *not* declared const (the strings it points to
are, but not my_strings itself.  I think it would have to be declared

	const char *const my_strings[] = {...}

for my_strings to be const.

But even so, I still don't think it could be shared between processes
due to relocation.  Each process would see the strings at a different
address and would require a private copy of my_strings to point to
that address.
