I'd imagine that we've never noticed it before because you'd only see it
if you took a file bucket, split and/or copied it, and read from a LATER
part of the file BEFORE reading from the beginning of the file, which
isn't common in current Apache modules.  Maybe we should come up with a
mod_scramble/mod_unscramble to test for weird stuff like this.  =-)
