rep_read_contents() edge case checksum error, FSFS f7

Stefan, is this an edge case bug?

rep_read_contents() in libsvn_fs_fs/cached_data.c_at_1780363 is quoted below.

rep_read_contents() potentially reads one or more times from the
fulltext cache and then finds the fulltext cache is no longer available.
I suppose this could happen because the entry could be evicted because
other entries are being more recently/frequently accessed even though we
haven't finished calling rep_read_contents() for this particular rep.

In this case, rep_read_contents() calls skip_contents() to skip-read
from the window stream, to catch up that stream to the point we'd
already reached in the fulltext cache before it became unavailable.

Then we read the requested LEN bytes from the window stream, and update
the calculated checksum with those LEN bytes ... but not with the
skipped bytes.

Won't that lead to a checksum mismatch when we reach the end of the rep?
