Not only possible, but likely.  What happens is this:

  1. Emacs starts up
  2. ERC begins initializing
  3. ERC logins in to ZNC
  4. ZNC starts playing black all the messages that came in since I last
     exited Emacs.
  5. Emacs sometimes survives this, sometimes crashes.

So it's quite possible that a "past message" ZNC is playing back contains a
partial byte sequence.
