Well, this means that the recoverable virtual memory (RVM) is not
correctly initialized.

Remove /vice/srv.conf and run 'vice-setup-rvm', which takes you through
the steps for setting up rvm again.

First set up something simple, 2M log is more than sufficient, and 44 or
90M data. It looks like it fails to mmap the data segment, maybe the
large log was mapped in an overlapping region, or there was not enough
space for the data segment.

Can't start the server without first initializing RVM.

The server is dead, just idling in an endless loop waiting for someone
to attach a debugger. You can kill it, as there is nothing to debug.
