I have seen something similar.  I saw this happen on a block device on
NetBSD.  After some thought, but no verification, I came to the conclusion
there may be a bug in the mmap code for block devices. 

For this case, my first thoughts were that possibly /dev/ram0 may not
support mmap.  If it does, then there may be a bug in the mmap support.
