I've not seen that. Any chance you could open a new bug in bugzilla, and 
upload a sample file that shows this? (We can then use this as a basis for 
enhancing DirectoryChunk, and unit testing it)

a call to getDirectory(). From their, loop over all the directory entries 
looking for something you find interesting. When you have something that 
catches your eye, DocumentInputStream will let you read it.
