Fixing it?

I've got a pile of changes to include in a new distribution; I'll roll this in also. But I can't be sure when I'll get a new version out; I'm simply too busy to spend much time on this stuff. FWIW I've never been bit by this problem. Without looking at the code I'd guess that it's a non problem 'cuz if the file doesn't exist or if the size is wrong then the mmap will fail and the library will fall back to using reads anyway (at least on UNIX systems).
