I guess the next thing to check is if your "dd" is actually seeking, or
just pretending to... Maybe an strace of the "dd" call will tell us if
it is screwing with our minds. Also, if you could make a scratch ext2
filesystem with 1k blocks, and see if it does the same thing. Even
better would be to try a different kernel to see if it affects this.
