If yes: I'd suspect a subtle change to the way KF8/K7 combo files are being built has made it necessary to update/upgrade KindleUnpack's splitter feature.

If no: I'd suspect a Kindle Previewer bug.
The same problem happens to files produced by KindleGen 2.3 and 2.7

I suppose for backward compatibility with older Kindle books (produced by MobiPocket Creator and KindleGen 1). Those Mobi7 files open without problems in Kindle Previewer 2.8.
