Follow-up Comment #7, bug #12162 (project findutils):

Due to the nature of filesystem disk allocation and use of blocks,           
I guess i can imagine why someone who's searching on blocks would            
be sad if his block search showed him files that were using that             
many blocks, so the (undocumented?) rounding requirement may fit with the
principle of least surprise.

For any other unit it seems horribly broken.  Maybe the right solution is to
leave the rounding logic for searches on blocks, but do as anonymous in
comment #3 suggests and make the k/M/G suffixes act as multiplers of "c".
