No, I dropped the ball there and unfortunately I haven't picked it up since. I
think we should try to come up with a way to force short packages to get sent
by a server to help us write better code that handles this situation.

But I think we can release anyway as this bug has been present for a while and
doesn't seem to hurt that many people - I'm guessing blindly based on nothing
but lack of bug reports.
