The problem seems to be that

  index->mmap_base = mmap_anon(index->mmap_full_length);

in lib-index/mail-index-open.c(287) returns -1 (MAP_FAILED) which is
then fed to mail_index_init_header(..., 0xffffffff) without being

The mmap in anon_mmap_fixed in lib/mmap-anon.c returns
"Not enough space" in errno. The parameter values are
"address=0x00002000 length=0x00002000".
