nothing is wrong with it, but it is an example of a file with two
potential free atoms that could be used as moov's if the genuine moov
were to become corrupted (I thought I'd let you do that bit, losing the
last 3759 bytes should do it ;) )

So that is your reference, If you truncate it you have a broken file you
can test your patch against.
