Hold off. There is a serious bug in the APR MMAP code on Windows that is breaking things.
The offending code from mmap.c is here:

    offhi = (DWORD)((*new)->psize << 32);

psize is a 32 bit integer and shifting it left or right 32 bits apparantly does not change
the value.  So for a 500 byte file, offlo and offhi are both set to 500. Attempting to
MMAP with the resulting offlo and offhi fails with an insufficient memory.

Unless Mr. Rowe wants to fix this the right way for large file support, I vote for setting
offhi = 0 then tag and roll.
