AFAICT, this problem is still 100% the same.

now that your update talks about fragmentation, i think the
PR has all the details it needs -- it certainly happens on
a 64GB machine with a lot of free ram that was active in
recent times.  enough concurrent 4095mb dd's ends up making
it work again.

unless the problem is documented in another PR, i think this
one should be re-opened.
