`similar` does not produce a SharedArray when fed one

parallel
#1

Consider this:

using SharedArrays
x = SharedArray{Float64}(1, 1)
y = similar(x)

I would expect y to also be a SharedArray, however

julia> typeof(x)
SharedArray{Float64,2}

julia> typeof(y)
Array{Float64,2}
#2

The source array is actually an Array
