   When you reach the quota roof, the system stops writing (and shows the
error message you see). Your linux system fills the remaining file space
eith ZEROS, using a feature called "hole file system" (correct me if I'm
wrong...). If you compare the original file with the new one, you'll see
they aren't the same.
   I released a lill' patch, some time ago, that truncates the file size
when you reach the quota limit. If you can't find it in the SAMBA archive,
I'd be glad on sending it to you.

						Hope this helps,
