update your newfs first of all.  i had that problem and upon
examination of the newfs output i was getting and the size of the
image once mounted, i decided that the image was screwy.

revision 1.56

the change of calculation of inodes per group in rev 1.52 was far too
aggressive; rework to be a bit less susceptable to round-off error.
now it's likely that the density might not be obtained with a small
filesystem with a large number of inodes (e.g -s 4M -i 1k), but that's
an extremely unlikely corner case that can easily be rectified with
command-line arguments.
