I bet this is one of those gray areas where everyone can blame each other.
I've noticed a distinct tendency for ISO images to be produced with
a header that says the ISO is so big, but the file is actually smaller
than the header implies. For instance, here is some of the output
from an isoinfo dump of an ubuntu iso file:

zooty> isoinfo -d -i ubuntu-7.10-alternate-amd64.iso
Logical block size is: 2048
Volume size is: 355219

So that says the file should be 355219*2048 bytes big == 727488512

In fact, this ISO is that big, but I have encountered ISO files
that were smaller, and when I've dd'ed /dev/zero onto the end
to make up the size difference, I've been able to write & verify them
fine in k3b.

That being the case, this seems like something k3b could do, so
maybe it could be categorized as a k3b bug?
