Won't work well, because the ID3 parsing loop won't detect end-of-buffer properly. Either the while statement is made more fool-proof (as it is now, "size - readsize" can wrap), or the else part in the "frame-header if-statement" needs the following code:

    if(headerlen > (size - readsize))
        headerlen = (size - readsize);

(I've encountered this problem; see http://rockbox.haxx.se/mail/archive/rockbox-archive-2002-08/0686.shtml)
