According to Roman Rakus on 6/2/2008 7:06 AM:
| Maybe already reported bug, but
| bash is using 1024 bytes block size, but should be using 512 bytes.

I would much rather see sizes as 1k if POSIXLY_CORRECT is not set; in
other words, if you patch this, I think this is an appropriate place to
make the code conditional on whether bash is emulating posix rather than
hard-coded.  People just don't think conveniently in terms of the older
512b block sizes.
