[Samba] Quotas and Win98 clients

I've successfully setup a Samba 2.2.3a file server with quota support
on a RedHat Linux 7.1 with Kernel 2.4.18-ac2.
Win NT clients (NT, 2K, XP) works fine, and samba report the quota
per user as disk capacity.
But Win98/ME clients don't. Samba report the filesystem capacity,
and even worse, users can bypass their quotas !
I solved the problem using a dfree script written in perl, but I'd like
to know if there is another solution.
I think this problem occured because smbd process is owned by root when
I connect from Win98, and by the user when I connect from Win2k.
Does anybody have any suggestion ?
Thanks a lot.
