ipcs probably won't show anything interesting. Can you check truss output when you do a big sort (select count(*) from dba_source order by 1)? Filter on calls such as brk, mmap (get args of this). Also pmap -x | grep shmid. See if the mapped size increases when you do big sorting. And, pmap -s <your shadow process> to see which page size segment increases its size.
