Actually on my system all partitions are 1k:

Filesystem           1k-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda1               101075     86295      9561  90% /
/dev/sda5               987251    747829    188416  80% /usr
/dev/sda6               987251    922089     14156  98% /var
/dev/sda7              1771824   1657510     22744  99% /home

calista:/home/ecki# for i in /dev/sda1 /dev/sda5 /dev/sda6 /dev/sda7; do
echo "$i une2fs -l $i | grep Block\ size" ; done
/dev/sda1 Block size:               1024
/dev/sda5 Block size:               1024
/dev/sda6 Block size:               1024
/dev/sda7 Block size:               1024

This is because I dont have so big partitions as u have and mke2fs is
guessing that smaller blocks are better.
