NFS Quotas and Samba 2.0.7

Hello everyone!

I am currently running Samba 2.0.7 on a RedHat Linux 6.1 box. My user 
home directories on this box are NFS mounted from another server. Quotas 
have been enabled on this server and rpc.rquotad is running.

On Linux, I can see the user's quotas via a quota -v <username> :-

testing:~# quota -v try
Disk quotas for user try (uid 1006): 
     Filesystem  blocks   quota   limit   grace   files   quota   limit        52    5120    5120              12       0       0 
However, when I tried to do a smbclient \\\\testing\\homes -Utry , I 
noticed that Samba shows me the total amount of disk space available on 
the mount rather than how much of the user's quota is left.

testing:~# smbclient \\\\testing\\homes -Utry
added interface ip= bcast= nmask=
Domain=[TESTING] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 2.0.7]

smb: \>

But if I were to access a non-NFS mounted share, Samba will show me how 
much of the disk quota is left rather than the total amount of space 
left  on the device.

Does anyone have any idea how I can make Samba display the disk quotas 
correctly? Is this a bug in Samba or have I misconfigured something 

My current configuration for the [homes] share is as follows :-

   comment = Testing Home Directory
   browseable = no
   read only = no

Thanks alot for your time and regards!
