Quite possible this might be valid.

My guess is that linuxgpio simply isn't used very widely by many people.

Is this a valid issue that I have described or, due to my general inexperience, am I trying to do something that should not work?

Using linuxgpio and tested on m2560 and m1284 chips:

When a line in the hex file has less than 0x10 data bytes, avrdude does not write the high byte at the specified memory location as 0xFF. This in turn results in a verification error.

Attached is a sample hex file that was used to produce this result as well as logic captures when using avrdude and Atmel Studio 7.

Avrdude results in a verification error while Atmel Studio does not. It appears that the difference is that Atmel Studio will write 0xFF to the high byte while avrdude moves on to the next memory location and does not write a high byte.
