This is a buffering issue caused by nested calls to mapfile in the same
process. The first call to mapfile reads a bufferful of data from the
input file, and the second mapfile (the one executed as part of the
callback) reads data into that same buffer. When the second call finishes,
and the first mapfile is called again, the remaining characters in the
buffer have already been discarded. It's not safe to call mapfile as part
of a callback to a mapfile invocation.
