Comment (by cehoyos):

 Replying to [comment:6 stefang]:
 > I have also seen such files in the wild on numerous occasions but they
 are hard to handle nicely. For smaller files as in your case just
 increasing the size of some I/O buffers might help. But for movies of
 hours length which drift apart by many megabytes the currently employed
 solution is not so bad, handling it without additional GETs would require
 complex code and would increase buffer size requirements by a lot.

 So is this an invalid ticket?
