    So why are 2 lines missing when I change the blocking factor from 256 to
    512? Even cat reads in 16k blocks... Also:

    % dd if=/proc/net/ip_conntrack bs=512 | perl -ne 'print length()."\n"'
    0+2 records in
    0+2 records out
    153
    138
    169
    151
    167
    139

    No line is longer than 256 chars, so why are 2 lines missing when I read
    in 256 byte blocks?
