Thats right. Its a 3' overhang so you can't fill it in. However, you
CAN chew back the overhang to give a nice blunt end.
I use T4 DNA pol for this (although I think Klenow does actually work).
Add dNTPs to your digest (to about 100uM) and a tiny tiny bit of T4 DNA pol.
Leave at room temperature for a few-30minutes (not too long or the
nucleotides run out and the polymerase munches up your DNA...)
