Huh.  The only explanation I can think of is that the dynamic loader is calling mmap in the midst of the mmap/munmap calls, thus resetting the "start from" address to use for address scanning.

I wanted it to "just work", but you've convinced me that it's hard to make a reliable test.  I'll add --disable-munmap.
