	Attack ?  Well, attack by requesting systems to overload

	... more debugging this morning got it working also :)

	Yeah, I noticed that too with my Linux machine.
	It turned out, that Linux can't create  MAP_ANONYMOUS|MAP_SHARED
	block with mmap() -- and Linus is unwilling to let it to be able
	to do so..  Nor does mapping of /dev/zero work, like it does at
	SunOS 4.1 to get that same effect (MAP_SHARED|MAP_FILE).

	... ah, finally I found why my earlier mmap() of a tmpfile()
	did fail, I had not rewound the file to the begin before
	doing mmap()..  Interesting that current filepointer offset
	can matter for mmap().  (This at Linux 1.3.83)
