This could be caused by a corrupt file, or by yet another special case in 
how continue records are found (you'd expect from their name that they'd 
follow the main record, but if only life were that simple....)

If you upload the problem file to a new bugzilla entry, along with a 
description, that'd be good. If you fancy some digging, try to figure out 
which record in the file is giving the error, then use BiffViewer to track 
down if there's a ContinueRecord after it or not (and if there is, what 
comes between the main record and it)
