    Yep, I'm a dummy. The failure I was thinking of was w/the completely
    flaky 3rd-gen iPod, just went back and looked at logs.

    So far as I can tell, I'm thinking 128k limit + fix capacity should be
    okay for both the 2nd and 3rd-gen iPods, and if someone comes up with
    evidence that the 2nd-gen does something badly w/the fix capacity
    workaround enabled, then we revisit trying to apply the workarounds
    more narrowly somehow.
