It should be 4K because of pipe.

See above - I'm writing to a pipe. The receiving process takes big
chunks of data, but may have died for some reason so that the pipe
stalls. Can that be a problem? In the meantime I'm trying to get
Arla's vos dump in shape and I'm finding a some strange code in
OpenAFS' vos dump, but not related to this problem. Patch will follow.
