I did a test this morning and got a very interesting result with you
command.  I started by wipe all the log files and clean up all zookeeper
data files.

Once I restarted both server, producer and consumer then execute your
command, what I got is a empty log as following:

Dumping /Users/scott/Temp/kafka/test-topic-0/00000000000000000000.log
Starting offset: 0

One observation, the 00000000000000000000.index file was getting huge but
there was nothing in 00000000000000000000.log file.
