    About your script changes, I like to make it portable, and I use the
    following versions:

    GNU bash, version 2.05b.0(1)-release (i386-redhat-linux-gnu)

    dd (coreutils) 4.5.3

    What shell and coreutils are you using?

    Avoiding short counts is easy but avoiding C-style expressions is primitive

    - count=100K
    + count=100000

    - while (( i-- )); do
    + while (( i=`expr $i - 1` )); do

    In your opinion are your changes more portable across a wide range of systems?

    It has a hard time to read anything else, the slower the disk, the worse.

    Suppose rmap undoes the fixes introduced in -rc6.

    Have you tried -rc6 plain?
