Nice catch.

We just fetched the first 53 bytes of a 52 byte file and the percentage
fetched calculation hits a divide-by-zero error. It is quite unusual,
the file probably was changed on the server between fetching the
attributes and the current data fetch and the invalidation callback
hasn't reached the client yet.

I guess I can fix this by introducing an if (offset >= length) case. Not
pretty, but it will work.
