Wouldn't the generation of an error message, when no error condition exists, be 
considered a bug? At the very least I would think it would be undesirable.

What about a 4096 physical sector drive?

If mis-alignment can negatively impact performance, I would expect a documented 
procedure on avoiding it. Or is my expectation out of line? I certainly 
wouldn't mind helping document the procedure if I could get a clear 
understanding on how what the procedure is.
