    It's not trivial to write something like this :)

    I'll be using something I already have. If I can't reproduce the problem,
    then perhaps it is due to sendfile and someone can write a customized
    test. The main reason I offered is because people are ignoring the
    bug report for the most part and asking for a test case. I may be able
    to offer an independent verification of the problem which might convince
    someone to write up a dedicated test case...
