I know this is a silly answer, but it might be true nonetheless. If the
remote file system gets full, the error message will get lost (since it
occurs on the remote machine). So dd will say "I/O error" although it
ought to say "disk full".

But I gather you have sent the machine back by now? Good luck it comes
back in one piece.
