The only stuff I've read on 4k sectors is that the drives emulate 1/2k
sectors and if the system doesn't understand this, will suffer
performance problems... [From a piece on Winders XP, IIRC]

What you're describing is consistent with this.

You should be able to create partitions that align on 4k boundaries.

I've not tried changing block sizes on filesystems like ext2/3.
Others here might know how to do that.
