It looks like I need to run aria_chk -z every time before I do the copy. Is that expected?

I guess if something has been "freed" in the table the free block needs to be zero filled, presumably for security reasons. For my application I don't care, so I'm wondering if there is an option to avoid this.

Thanks for your help.
