Because there was absolutely no reaction I try again.
We got some problems here when a user was reaching his block hard quota.
If smbd is writing to a file and there is no more disk space available,
smbd reports an error to the client and the file is truncated.
I think this is normal unix behaviour, but it's not compatible to
( Solaris 2.5.1 will report the real filesize, but Linux reports
the wanted filesize stored in the inode even if du reports 0 blocks ! )
How does NT behave if it is running out of diskspace?
This is not really a bug, but it is difficult to handle and Windows
users ( and Windows applications) will not understand it.
