Just so it's on record, the df program reports with a column '1K-blocks' with the correct block count for the incorrect block size.

Particularly, I have an ext2 filesystem mounted with 2048 byte blocks, 254000 of them. df lists this incorrectly as 254000 1K blocks. Can it just say 'blocks' and have an extra column for 'block size'?

I know, seriously minor bug, but I just wanted it on record that it exists :p

Thanks, I never even noticed it myself. Believe it or not 'df' really only exist to keep grub-install happy, which is a script that calls 'df' just to find out what devices are mounted. Normally the System Information application will tell you the correct file system usage, though.
