	seems like a bug in WC to me.
	With unix quotas, all you need to create an empty file is the
	space it takes as directory entry (a few bytes), so, unless
	the quota us fully exhausted, you can create it.

	Probably WC should notice it can finish the copy and remove
	the empty file...

	in fact, quota support on samba only is used (AFAIK) to inform
	the user (client) about the amount of space he can use; but
	the limit is performed by regular unix quota system. (so, you
	could compile samba w/o quota support and still users would be
	limited by quotas)
