[edit] Description

Proper permissions must now be defined when creating IPC (inter-process communication) resources (shm, semaphore, and msgqueue). The flag argument (value) can no longer be just IPC_CREAT. Specifying only IPC_CREAT means that the IPC resource is created with absolutely no permissions, and will result in EACCESS error.

[edit] How to reproduce

 int msgid;      
struct msqid_ds buf = {0};
msgid = msgget(1000, 512); /* returns with errno = 13 */

[edit] Solution

Starting from the next Open C release, IPC_CREAT has to be OR-ed with READ (0400) or/and WRITE (0200) permission.
