Confirmed. Investigating the reason for the incorrect reporting of 
VERR_OUT_OF_RANGE for perfectly valid sector numbers.


This is certainly caused by the same issue. However I don't see any 
reason why this should be "sometimes", as the out of range check is 
against data which isn't supposed to change after an image is created.
