Group quota not limiting for users not identical to the group?


I have four shares on my server, all belonging to different users, the total of which I don't want to exceed 100GB. To do this, I made four directories which belong to group a (which has a name identical to one of the users), and made all four users part of group a. Then I set up a group quota of 100GB on group a.
Problem: It only limits for the user who's name is identical to group a, and not the others. And I can't seem to figure out why, so help is greatly appreciated. Ideas?

There's a very good guide here: http://www.linuxtopia.org/online_boo...as-configuring
you might want to check it step by step.
