The bug is still there, as far as I know. However, the limit is not at
*exactly* 1 GB. If I recall correctly, the address space for a process
is 2GB (or perhaps 4GB), and there has to be enough continous free
space for mmapping the entire partition somewhere. Slightly more than
1GB might well work.
