[CentOS] dumpe2fs and repquota not agreeing on block size

I am trying to set up user quotas on my /var
partition to enforce limits on user's mailbox
sizes. The machine is running CentOS 5.
When I do this:
/sbin/dumpe2fs /dev/md2 | grep 'Block size'
Block size: 4096
That tells me the block size is 4k.
But, if I do:
It is telling me that one of my users is
currently using 10264 blocks. But, if I look
at their mail file, it is 10493792 bytes,
which means they should be using 2562 blocks
Also, if I do:
I get this
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/md2 39674140 20401792 17224468 55% /var
Which tells me the blocks are 1K in size. The repquota
result makes much more sense with a 1K block size.
Any idea why dumpe2fs is giving a 4K block size?
