Again; I'm testing drives. I format a disk to 360KB on a 360KB drive
with 386 BIOS set to 360KB. Then I run scandisk on the same disk in
the same drive and it reports an error. This occurs many times using
many different drives and many different disks. Very repeatable.

(The drives in question can read known good disks and other known good
drives read disks formatted on these drives; it's not alignment.)
