[Samba] roaming profiles and quota limits

I have a Samba server where I established disk quotas for each user. When I 
check the free space from Windows its shows correctly the used space, but 
not the total space: I have set 100 MB soft limit, 200 MB hard limit and one 
user has used 150 MB, and it shows "150 MB used / 0 bytes free". When the 
user logs off, Windows complains that it can't store the roaming profile due 
to lack of disk space, which is untrue and causes some problems like files 
that the users store and are not there the next day.

I guess Samba gets the total space from the soft quota limit and not from 
the hard quota limit. Is this correct and if so can I change it?
