Runrev bugs out on some HFS metadata (Mac OS)?

Has anyone seen a situation where "the long files" listing is wildly
inaccurate when reporting the size of the Resource Forks of files?
Looking at 1 particular file from 3 different utilities:
TEXT : R*ch
1868 bytes in resource fork
354 bytes in data fork
OS X Finder----
2,222 bytes (which happens to equal 1868 + 354 reported by ResEdit)
Runrev "the long files"---
empty creator code!
354 bytes data fork
25710144 resource fork!!
I ran Disk Utility and checked the volume, but the problem is still
Also copied the file over to another HFS+ volume, and still Runrev
reports this strange size. So there is something about this file
that's confusing Runrev.
Now I went to copy the file to a new folder to put in a Stuffit file
and send to Runrev support, but now the copy of the file shows the
normal sized resource fork.
This is just bizarre
