Sure, I will check that.

Yesterday I introduced a break in FindNextElement that will avoid a memmove in
many cases. It might speed up a bit the byte by byte seeking. But I'll check the
algo to see where it could be faster (avoiding copying many times the same data).

The bug that Mosu mentions is that when seeking to an arbitrary position in the
file, FindNextElement fails to find a proper Cluster element (even though there
is one). I'll check that ASAP.
