Well i assume it is endly correct : Coda give you the number in bytes :  
here 4Mb !
So convert it in Bytes ( octet ), divide by 8 you get 500 000 kB... so 
500 000 ko....
The shell counts in Bytes ( octet ) and not in byte.... so everything is 
right i think....

This fu.... upper and lower"b" case....
