> Isn't 2 GiB + 1 bytes mmap file enough for testing?


But creating multigigabyte files is very slow on Windows.  On Linux/FreeBSD test_mmap takes a fraction of a second, whereas on Windows it takes over 2 minutes.  (Presumably Linux/FreeBSD is automatically creating a sparse file.)

So adding assertions to an existing test is more convenient than creating another huge file just for these new tests.
