The available facts fit the theory, so I added a mention of what we've
been seeing on Alpha to the bug report.  Mike's immediate reply
indicated two things: (1) he's actively working the issue; and (2) the
underlying cause seems to be someone overlooking the possibility of an
other-than-4k page size (Alpha has an 8k page size).

comments on 650151 hint that may be the case.
