Even if so, your problem is still a client issue. The client makes repeated
requests after it already has the file data, whether it asks for 256 and
gets back 4 (as currently) or whether it were to ask for 4 and get back 4
(as you suggest it could). I think you'll have to investigate whatever
client you're using to find out why it makes the repeated requests.
