we will simplify things by saying the max chunk size is 5 bytes instead. With your example, it's easy to see how AAAAA would be a match. Next we get to C, which is not a match. Then we get to CB, CBB, CBBB, CBBBB, none of these would match, and we hit the max chunk size. This normally would cause us to define a new chunk, with a chunk size of 5 bytes.
I guess it may work if the lookup window is twice the max chunk size though.
