The quota code in Linus tree is too broken for vendors to ship. Thats
why RH and most other vendors ship closer to working code. Try using a 32
bit uid with the Linus quota, or filling in holes, or hitting ^S then
getting a quota exhaustion message sent to that tty (dead dead dead time)

People tried to resolve it with Linus before 2.4.0  and the patches got dropped
and ignored and they got no mail replies or anything. I suspect this one will
be resolved at the point Linus ceases to directly manage 2.4 not before
