i've been able to use 32K blocks on exactly that tape drive in 1.5.*


root@serwer# tar -b64 -cvf /dev/rst0 /bin /sbin
tar: Write block size of 32768 too large, maximum is: 32256

the drive is:
st0 at scsibus0 target 6 lun 0: <ARCHIVE, IBM4326NP/RP  !D, 04BK> tape
st0: drive empty
st0: sync (200.00ns offset 15), 8-bit (5.000MB/s) transfers
