[docs] [issue18815] DOCUMENTATION: "mmap .close()" doesn't close the underlying file

New submission from Jesús Cea Avión:

In documentation http://docs.python.org/3.3/library/mmap.html#mmap.close you can read: "Close the file". I could interpret that it is going to close the file vinculated to the MMAP. But it doesn't. It only close the MMAP object (as it should).

Please, update doc to clear possible misunderstandings. Thanks.
