Comment (by darkdragon):

 I'm sure, DD32, that what you said might just be the case. Which is why I
 pull in some padding of 512 bytes. I believe it should be enough for
 version info, since it isn't part of the check.

 I think that the version info should be required, but it isn't up to me to
 make that decision.

 Well, the "padding" is really a hack and I'm not too happy with it, but I
 think pulling in 2.5 kB is better than 120KB. It might be better to pull
 in increments of 2kB if a lot of problems start popping up. That might be
 a good idea as a 2kB file is not going to cause the memory from
