Today is one of those days that nothing seems to go right, ever have that?

You can look at the memory layout of a smaller server in /proc

 cat /proc/`pidof codasrv`/maps

There should be about 1.7GB of addressable space between 0x50000000 and

But looking at your other numbers, heapsize = 0x3ff0 and static size is
0x10, which adds up to exactly dsparm (0x4000). But RVM needs at least
one page for the header, and RDS needs one page for the list heads of
the allocation chains.

So you could reduce heapsize (or static size) a bit and things should
fit. 0x3fefd000 should already leave 2 pages free, but maybe 0x3fef0000
is safer, and only wastes about 50KB.
