Hm.  This might have something to do with the fact that we now use
mmap (or CreateFileMapping on Windows) to load cached-routers on
startup, in order to let the OS use less RAM.  It looks like the
Windows implementation could be broken, though.  If anybody with
Windows coding fu wants to take a look at tor_mmap_file in compat.c,
that would probably be where the error is.

BTW, to make sure we don't lose track of bugs, it's best to use the
bug tracker at
