I think the test is somewhat bogus: It tries to check that
modification to an ACCESS_COPY doesn't modify the underlying
file, but assumes that .flush becomes a no-op, even though
an exception is more reasonable (IMO; errors should never
pass silently).

So I see two options: Declare that .flush() always raises an
exception (and modify implementations that don't produce an
exception accordingly), or declare that aspect to be
system-dependent, and modify the test (and the
documentation) to expect and ignore an exception.

Assigning to Tim, as he incorporated that feature into mmap.
