OK I now understand what happens. It's because of my uneven splitting (sometimes I play clever). The code is wrong for the case I used, ie:

Session A running 1-3/7
Session B running 4/7
Session C running 5-6/7
Session D running 7/7

What happens is,
A reads line 1, 6, 11 and so on.
B reads line 4, 11, 18...
C reads line 5, 11, 17...
D reads line 7, 14, 21...

And no-one reads line 2, 3, 8, well you get it.

I think A and C have to to read 3 and 2 consecutive words (even if that means slightly less optimal spread). And skip 4 / 5 words after that. I can't think of any better solution but I wouldn't be surprised if you can.
