As Ted suggested can you see the client logs closely (RS side also)? Is there next() call retries happening from the client side because of RPC timeouts?
In such a case this kind of issue can happen. I doubt he hit HBASE-5974

Otherwise we have two choices:
1. write a unit / integration test that shows this bug
2. see more of the region server / client logs so that further analysis can
