>Description:
	When ibs is an integral multiple of ibs, and there is a sequence
	of obs consecutive zeroes at the end of the last input block,
	the last character written by dd may be some different (non-zero)
	byte from the input stream.
>How-To-Repeat:

$ perl -e 'print "ABCDEFGH\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0"'|dd ibs=16 obs=8 conv=sparse of=toto 
1+0 records in
2+0 records out
16 bytes transferred in 0.001373 secs (11653 bytes/sec)
$ od -a toto
0000000    A   B   C   D   E   F   G   H nul nul nul nul nul nul nul   A
