Yeah, this bug isn't against HWPF, it's against POIFS.  We have our own Word doc
parser that does support Word 6.0 / 95 and we don't use HWPF.

I guess "fix" was not a good description of what our patch did.  All it does is
throw the checked IOException instead of the unchecked (and altogether
unexpected) ClassCastException that it used to throw (which killed our app).

So if this storage is so evil that you don't think POIFS should be able to read
it, or if you are only maintaining POIFS as required to support your own
document libraries, then at least failing in a cleaner way would be good.
