Hmm... There might be some clue about that in the source code as well, if we're lucky.

If the program were to encounter a long track (as opposed to a sector with weak bits, for example), then recognized and subsequently decoded it correctly, then it should be indicated by an increase in the number of sectors displayed for that track, presumably.

I think you would have noticed that, so you're probably correct and it doesn't work properly.
