From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X; en-US; rv:1.0.0) Gecko/20020529

Description of problem:
After running the edquota command for a new user, the following appeared in the

kernel: VFS: find_free_dqentry(): Data block full but it shouldn't.
kernel: VFS: Error -5 occured while creating quota.

Now every time quota for this user is accessed we get:

kernel: VFS: Quota for id 760 referenced but not present.
kernel: VFS: Can't read quota structure for id 760.

# quotaoff /home
# quotacheck /home
# quotaon /home

fixed the trouble.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel 2.4.9-31smp

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Additional info:

This filesystem is ext3.

You might be interested about new quota bug #90939, can you verify it on Red Hat
Linux 7.1?
Comment 2 Bugzilla owner 2004-09-30 11:39:42 EDT
Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
