Ah.  So we aren't actually unmapping anything when this happens.  I
could imagine the code getting confused and crashing because of that;
in any case, we're wasting tons of memory this way - it also means
that the "unmap huge chunk of memory all at once" trick won't work.

RTH is right, we shouldn't be pretending cygwin has anonymous mmap.
I'll see if I can't turn the test program into an improvement to the
autoconf test.
