Does ant actually try to mmap stdin? That's a bug in ant.

POSIX says you may only mmap a file, shared memory object,
or typed memory object. The stdin file descriptor is neither
of those things therefore you can't mmap stdin.

One might argue the bug is that the Linux kernel allows the
mmap to succeed.
