to my understanding, writing with dd on a mounted device leads to
unpredictable results, and never guarantees to work.
and i think your problem was not caused by differences in dd builds,
it was different behaviours of the systems on a modified mounted root
It would seem we're finally getting somewhere. This should be fairly
easy to test, namely: performing dd on an *unmounted* (not live) system
and seeing if it finally works.
