Coda File System

rdsinit complains - but succeeds?

A host with 128M RAM, 1G partition as rvm data, 1.2G partition swap.
A brand new minimal Debian install, custom kernel 2.4.19.

At vice-setup time rdsinit tells:
(typing looking at another screen)
Rdsinit will initialize data and log.
This takes a while.
rvm_initialize succeeded.
Going to initialize data file to zero, could take awhile.
 [long pause]
 [long pause]
release_segment unmap failed RVM_ENOT_MAPPED  [this is what warries me]
rds_zap_heap completed successfully.
rvm_teminate succeeded.

RVM setup is done!

What does the "unmap failed" mean, the program still reports success?

rdsinit is from rvm-1.6 with "yield" patch.

The relevant part of the script reads
    parms="$dsparm $rvmstart $heapsize $staticsize $nlists $chunk"

    codaconfedit "$conf" rvm_log "$log"
    codaconfedit "$conf" rvm_data "$data"
    codaconfedit "$conf" rvm_data_length "$dsparm"

    echo "Rdsinit will initialize data and log."
    echo "This takes a while."
### note don't "" $parms
    rdsinit -f "$log" "$data" $parms

    if [ $? != 0 ]; then
        echo Error in rdsinit. Exiting.
        exit 1

Hope somebody has the answer!
