Values given for the KEY_BLOCK_SIZE table/index option are rounded up.
Values for mysiam_block_size (specified at startup) are rounded *down*.
This may be a bug for treatment of myisam_block_size. See email in private comment.

How to repeat:

Suggested fix:
Treat myisam_block_size similarly to KEY_BLOCK_SIZE.

Thank you for the report.

Verified as described.

Field workaround because "indicate accurate values" can be considered as workaround.
