The negative length indicates to me that you're trying to mmap "too much."
Some things to check:

Are all your cycbuffs under 2GB?  If not, did you build with
--with-largefiles and are your cycbuffs regular files?  Solaris can't mmap
block devices >2GB unless you're running in 64 bit mode.

Did you build with --enable-tagged-hash?  If so, you can't use large files
and you can't build with --with-largefiles; those options are mutually

Is the size of your cycbuffs in cycbuff.conf correct?  The size is in
kilobytes, not bytes.

On Solaris, you need to increase the number of allowable open file
descriptors for news above the laughably small default limit of 64.
