Thanks for the report.
That's fixed in the latest test release.

It's fixed in 4.0.33, too.

|       Hi!

| dd if=stage1 of=/dev/fd0 bs=512 count=1
| dd if=stage2 of=/dev/fd0 bs=512 seek=1

| message when I try to do the second dd (even as root):
| dd: advancing past 1 blocks in output file `/dev/fd0': Permission denied
| And this thing works properly when under 2.2.xx...
