I don't think this behavior was done on purpose and I think it would benefit
users if we made it not do this. I think it should be sufficient for the
callback to signal the end of the read *once*.

Writing up a test case to reproduce this scenario might take some creativity.
Do you have any special setup that makes this happen more likely than others?

Fixing the code probably requires a better separation between end-of-input and
end-of-upload than what that function does right now.
