it might also be related to the value of parameter DIRECT_IO_FACTOR,
used in PW/diropn.f90:

#if defined(__ALPHA)
#  define DIRECT_IO_FACTOR 2
#  define DIRECT_IO_FACTOR 8
   ! the  record length in direct-access I/O is given by the number of
   ! real*8 words times DIRECT_IO_FACTOR (may depend on the compiler)
