This is interesting. If you change RECSIZE to a value that is not 8192,
it works fine. Probably an off-by-one somewhere in the code, because as
it turns out, the first record is exactly RECSIZE (8192) bytes, which
probably eats a terminator somewhere. I'll take a deeper look into this
shortly and send a patch soon.
