Seems that insert-file-contents is trying to be smart and determine
which parts of the contents are shared among the old and the new
text. On this case b.h.next and b.h.master differ only on the central
region of text. The arguments passed to c-after-change indicates a
deletion from position 94 to position 94+286=380.

I don't know if that is correct, as the transformation is not a deletion
but a replacement of the middle text segment of the buffer with a text
chunk of different lenght, and the doc is not clear about that case.
