The number reported is in 1K blocks.

That would be 344EC4 so its plausible. Could you have issued requests before
changing the block size ? It sounds form your comemnt that after that error
everything continued fine ? If so you only issued one stray request somehow -
as it would have logged each I/O that went off the end in its view.
