Here is an interesting strace comparison:

 4978   26688 [main] mmaptest 2284 MapViewNT: 7FFA0000 =
NtMapViewOfSection (h:6EC, addr:0, len:28237, off:0, protect:80, type:0)
    60   27113 [main] mmaptest 2284 MapViewNT: 7FFA7000 =
NtMapViewOfSection (h:6E8, addr:7FFA7000, len:36864, off:0, protect:80, type:0)
  126   27239 [main] mmaptest 2284 mmap64: 0x7FFA0000 = mmap()

/3GB not large address aware:
  183   22192 [main] mmaptest 2856 MapViewNT: 7FFF0000 =
NtMapViewOfSection (h:6F0, addr:0, len:28237, off:0, protect:80, type:0)
   68   22648 [main] mmaptest 2856 MapViewNT: 0 = NtMapViewOfSection
(h:6EC, addr:7FFF7000, len:36864, off:0, protect:80, type:0)
   44   22692 [main] mmaptest 2856 seterrno_from_win_error:

   46   22738 [main] mmaptest 2856 geterrno_from_win_error: windows error

13337   36195 [main] mmaptest 2856 mmap64: 0xFFFFFFFF = mmap()

/3GB large address aware:
  191   22246 [main] mmaptest 3420 MapViewNT: AEFA0000 =
NtMapViewOfSection (h:6EC, addr:0, len:28237, off:0, protect:80, type:0)
   66   22676 [main] mmaptest 3420 MapViewNT: AEFA7000 =
NtMapViewOfSection (h:6E8, addr:AEFA7000, len:36864, off:0, protect:80,
  126   22802 [main] mmaptest 3420 mmap64: 0xAEFA0000 = mmap()

The second MapViewNT call is filling out the padding to a 64k boundary.
It appears in the problem case that the system doesn't like the 0x7FFF7000
address.  Any idea why?
