It did, I just didn't get around to looking at it in depth...

This is triggered in some rare circumstances, and was worsened by a recent
incorrect bugfix (there was a bug, the fix was wrong and exacerbated the
problem, making it more likely to be triggered). 

I didn't fix it sooner because the vast majority of my files (and other
test streams) don't trigger the bug anyway. I think this is the problem
you and others have been seeing, so do an update and see if it's improved.
