If only bad blocks are going to be reported as

blocks as well so the user can tell what is happening. I personally
consider this something major and would suggest that you change it
back until the extra error reporting can be added. That is just my
opinion, but I feel it is worth voicing strongly.

        I agree with this and would like to add my voice behind it as
        well.  I do understand the original intent but have found the
        same as Scott.   That said,  it's probably a good thing, as
        it'll be nice to have a breakdown on the non-trimmed/scraped
        stats (for now I concurrently run ddrescueview along side
        usually to get a deeper perspective of what's happening ).

I'm glad you reported this, but I would be a lot more glad if you had reported it six months ago when this change was introduced in 1.20-pre1. ;-)

About "changing it back", it is not possible because 'errsize' is currently used, for example, to calculate the remaining time.

I'll try to release 1.21-pre1 ASAP. I hope this time someone tests it.
