My samba 3.0.0rc2 is built --with-qoutas and each user has a quota limit.
Filesystem is ext3 on linux. Quota type is old (1).

Differences between samba 2.2.8 and 3.0.0rc2
In old version samba showed to the user disk space by quota, if user had
200MB quota limit, then in windows client was network drives disk space also
200MB. User always knew the exact free space he got until quota limit.
But in samba-3 samba always shows disk space by physical size (74GB), so
user can't see the actual disk free he has. User can't exceed the quota
limit and will suddenly be prompted "disk full".

Is this normal behaviour of samba-3 or is there something wrong with my
