What kind of file systems are you using?  (If it's an FFS, use
'dumpfs' to check the block size.)

If you're using a file system with a 4k block size, that's the
problem.  Use at least an 8k block size.  Unfortunately, the only way
to do that is newfs the file system (take a look at the newfs manual
page for the correct arguments).

Was the file system created automatically for you, e.g. by install
tools?  If so, that's a very serious bug...  8-)
