I managed to reproduce. It's segments of 68-80 bytes beyond corrupt in
the middle of the out, and there might be 1-3 of such occurences in the
30mb file I tested with. The first 16 bytes of the corruption are always
the same:

0000 1800 4ff3 937f e000 6381 7275 0008

Perhaps that hex pattern rings a bell with someone intimate with the
networking. The remaining wrong bytes don't seem to have anything in

Slab poisoning doesn't change the pattern, so it's not use-after-free.
