Unhappy Samba: 70 Gb free space, samba reports no space left?

I've setup SUSE 9.1 (DVD edition), installed the latest Samba version (3.0.5-0.1-SUSE) and set it up as a PDC.

Domain access, logins, shares etc it all works.
However,.... there seems to be total limit on the directories in /home.
The total size of /home seems to be limit to app. 6Gb .... when exceeding this, Samba's logs report "no space left" ...

Anyone have a suggestion what the problem might be?

p.s. the /home/username/ are used as such:

/home/username/.msprofile folder holds the Windows profile files.
/home/username/.userdata folder is mapped to the H: drive on the Windows machines.

I also mapped a commonly shared drive.

DF shows me that 10% of the entire disk has been used.

OK, ignore this message, or maybe learn something from it ...

Silly me ... the /home folder was part of a 8Gb partition ... doh!
Stupid ...

So for people with a similar problem:

use DF to see how the partitions are used.
