Sorry, I'm not in a position to test this right now. Can you
give me more information? Is the size field specifying the extra
bytes? Are they coming through? Does the size count of the data
field specify that it holds them? If you happen to have Inferno,
the output of styxmon would help. If not, I'm sure you can write
an Fcall pretty-printer pretty quickly.
