I saw the manpage.

And I tried that. The path should be a directory path right?

I'll assume it didn't work due to this error (file creation error).

How does xpra create mmap files? I'm skimming over
xpra/net/mmap_pipe.py, but I'm failing to detect any special operation
that isn't allowed in the container.
