It is a known bug (it actually never worked for me...), and I
think it has been reported several times too. (Anyway, please
report it to feedback again; maybe this way it gets better
attention. :) We're all waiting for a fix...
To work around, you need to do something like:
port: open/direct %file
; skip 1000 bytes
copy/part port 1000
The drawback is that you're actually reading from the file (which
is of course MUCH slower than just skipping...).
