This seems obviously wrong to me too, but there is another chunk there,
but not accounted for. 

Sadly checking chunk.end -1 doesn't handle this. If it did the check in
the loop would handle this case. This block after the loop might be
suspect, my tests show that result.len is 1 more than chunk.end.

I didn't figure out why we end up trailing context as atoms rather than
a chunk, looking in a debugger shows a correct chunk there. Is there a
reason why?
