I just updated my CVS copy and built with your patch. This is on 
Unixware 2.1.3.

I failed to get a login with the following entry in syslog:

May 29 17:08:42 host1 sshd[16561]: fatal: Privilege separation user sshd does no
t exist
May 29 17:08:42 host1 sshd[16560]: fatal: mm_request_receive: read: -1

I haven't been following the thread too closely until seeing your message
that you had the patch for mmap without MAP_ANONYMOUS.
