Sounds like whatever filesystem is default on BSDish systems doesn't
support sparse files.
Anyway, you can use mdb_stat to see what's in the MDB environment.
Oh, one additional note about the BSDs... I didn't see that behavior until
I enabled writemap. Disabling writemap reverted it to the same behavior as
linux, but then of course the advantage of writemap is lost. :P
