hard-limit quotas exceeded and how is that possible?


i have a user who consistently exceeds his hard-limit quota.. how is that possible?
redhat docs says::
A hard limit is the absolute maximum amount of disk space that a user or group can use. Once this limit is reached, no further disk space can be used.

(source: redhat /docs/manuals/linux/RHL-9-Manual/custom-guide/ch-disk-quotas.html)

but, I have FC4 actually.

anyhow, this is what i have, how can he exceed the hard-limit?

Code:
[root@www user_pages]# repquota -a
*** Report for user quotas on device /dev/hdh5
Block grace time: 7days; Inode grace time: 7days
                        Block limits                File limits

I guess i can just wait the 7 days and see what happens????
I think maybe i can change the grace time with the following
Code:
edquota -t
Code:
[root@www joe]# quotaoff -a
[root@www joe]# quotaon -a
[root@www joe]# repquota -a
*** Report for user quotas on device /dev/hdh5
Block grace time: 00:00; Inode grace time: 00:00
                        Block limits                File limits

folkevil  +-    9328       0    3800             12     0     0
so, no results yet. he still has 9238 instead of the maximum 3800.

Chicken & egg problem? Was folkevil already over the 3800 limit when you decided to setup quotas? Don't think quotas will destroy files; just prevents creation of new files if the hard limit has been reached. Of course as root you could delete folkevil's files if he refuses to do so.
