Just to highlight Karl's contribution, if you look back over the
discussion we had at gocql for this particular issue, we did actually
discuss the fact that we should probably actually look at the server
code to see if it doing anything unexpected. But we stopped short of
doing that. To Karl's credit, he did actually look at the code, and
spotted the bug.
