1) every process has its own address space
2) the memory, where you're trying to map the shared memory may be already
partially occupied, so fixed mapping *have to* fail occasionally

To summarize: I would not use fixed shared memory mapping - to be stable
it shall require dirty hacks to preallocate the memory region, with
unexpected problems floating up when you create a library from your code.
