... it worked for me :-)

Interestingly, I did a similar 'dd' locally on a XFS file system (CentOS 
6.2) and got an allocation size of 16Gb for a 10Gb file - may be it's a 
bug/feature of the XFS versions used?

I guess you might get a better response from the XFS mail list - see 
<http://oss.sgi.com/projects/xfs/> ???
