Sorry for delay, but I'm maintainer of that package only for short time.
with coreutils-5.97-12.6.fc6 on i386 architecture I got correct output:

$ ./dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/null bs=4M count=1024
1024+0 beolvasott rekord
1024+0 kiírt rekord
4294967296 bytes (4,3 GB) copied, 0,187065 seconds, 23,0 GB/s

Works for me, is the error still occuring on your side? Maybe you can add some
specification of your system(architecture, something specific, did you tried
with later versions of coreutils(F7?))

Closing as WORKSFORME , feel free to reopen it if the error still occurs on your
machine and you are still able to reproduce it.
