du error? weirdness.

Can anybody explain this?

[bill ~]$ ls -al boombastic.m3u
-rw-rw-r-- 1 bill bill 1094 Jul 22 01:01 boombastic.m3u
[bill ~]$ du -b boombastic.m3u
4096 boombastic.m3u

shouldn't du be returning 1094? My version of du (4.5.3) seems to return the wrong value for files on both ext3 and fat filesystems (this one's ext3). Konq correctly reports 1094 bytes (1.1k) for this file. Am I doing something wrong here?
