"wrong" ISO image size to be used in VirtualBox

Hi list!

I recently experienced a problem with the TDE Ubuntu 14.04 amd64 iso
image: it wasn't accepted as VM cd image in virtualbox.

To exclude a vbox problem, I wrote to their mailing list: one user told
me that, an iso image, to be consired a standard image, should have its
size dividable by 2048. [1]

I just had a try seeking the image with 2048 as block size and
everything is working properly.

Maybe images in the future should be "burned" with that block size?
