Shafeeq found an off-by-one error in the error reporting. This was fixed
in rvm-1.4, so this error could actually be RVM_UNCOMMIT, i.e. there are
pending transactions at the time we try to unmap the data segment.

Is RVM using files or a raw device? Maybe reinitializing the rvm log
file/device will help.
