Well, the problem in b) is that data[:2] creates a new memoryview,
so the underlying ManagedBufferObject now has two exports:

  - One from the context manager.

  - The second from the slice.

So memoryview.__exit__() decrements on export, but the second one
is hanging.

This actually works as expected because the ManagedBufferObject
cannot know that it could also release the slice. That's what I
meant by saying that it's the application's responsibility to
release all views that are based on the context manager's view.

One way of doing so would be this:

with open(fn, 'rb') as fd:
    with mmap.mmap(fd.fileno(), 0, access=mmap.ACCESS_READ) as mm:
        with memoryview(mm) as data:
            with data[:2] as theslice:
