Sorry, half-edited sentence has escaped ;-/ Should be

"And there the caller notices that callback has reported a successful
write, but the amount apparently written is not the same as the
amount it had asked to write. It interprets that as a short write
and tries to pull back. Only it's actually _forward_, since we'd
asked to write 0 bytes and got a small positive number from the
callback."
