Hi David,

You've beaten me to it with the fix before I could lodge the bug report :)

In your repo I've seen that the mmap(2) call now takes the MAP_PRIVATE flag. I
applied that change locally to my source tree and that has fixed the problem.
I've since re-read the mmap(2) man page to find out how that change could
be influential...

     [EINVAL]           None of MAP_ANON, MAP_PRIVATE, MAP_SHARED, or
                        MAP_STACK was specified.  At least one of these flags
                        must be included.

Although obvious to me now, I missed it on my previous reads.

Thanks for your assistance. I look forward to your coming set of changes. In
my view DTC is an important tool and I would be willing contribute effort to
making it feature parity with the GPL version if that is lacking.

Keep up the valuable work,
