[Samba] limits on quota sizes

Can anyone confirm the maximum quota that is allowed?

The individual quota files record the current usage in bytes and the quota in 
kilobytes.  I am hoping that quota and usage calculations use 64 bit integers so 
that there is no practical limit.  However, if 32 bit integers are used then I guess 
there would be a limit of 2 or 4 gigabytes.
