Also the script has read and execution permission for any user.
I have this problems:
- The clients don't get this information right (it shows instead the total
disk space of the partition and the samba logs say that the output of the

Could this be a bug?
- (To developers) Wouldn't it be better to report to the clients the hard
quota limit instead of the soft limit? This can cause that Windows doesn't
upload the profile at logoff when the used space is over the soft limit,
when actually it could be uploaded because the hard limit hasn't been
