Octal Dump (od) bug

I wanted to report what I think is a bug in the octal dump program.  I
am using Red Hat Linux 7.1 and tried to use od to check for special
characters but the the  -x  gave me wrong results.  Here is what I input
and the results:

   echo abcdef|od -cx
   a   b   c  d   e  f   \n  0a
   6261 6463 6665 000a

It looks like the -c is working correctly but the -x output is reversed.
