Could be... I hope so.

Worse than that... it can't read anything at all if you have a long
frame first.  e.g.:

Tag header
 Frame 1, length 128
 Frame 2, length 10
 Frame 3, length 10

It will overread frame 1 since it is looking for 512 bytes of data,
and include the next 2 frames (header and payload) in the returned
data from frame 1.  So just make a long title for a song in a
non-itunes player.
