Then your bit map was dirty when mmaped over file size.  This
explains me what happens.  Buffindexed assumes all bits are
unset if it see a new ovbuff, and unused blocks is counted by
how many blocks it used.  This is what 'inndf -o' shows.  But
when it comes to get new block, it looks up bit map to determine
which block is free.  If all bits are set, it claims like
'no space left for buffer, adding...'.
