When using 'Rm_session::attach()', the Rm_session_component tries to
place the dataspace at an address which is aligned to the dataspace
size. So, when setting NUM_REGIONS to 8 or 16, your test works, but with
10 regions there will be small holes in the address space and the last
dataspace does not fit anywhere, causing a 'Region_conflict' exception.
