Interesting. F7 contains squashfs-tools-3.2-1, vs 3.3-2 in F9 and the
changelog doesn't say anything too explicit about a break on storage
format.

Two things look suspicious - sparse files support and the change in
default block size.

Sounds complex. I will try going in the opposite direction: downgrade
the package on F9 or pass flags to disable the new fanciness.

thanks for the hints!
