Description Alfredo Ferrari 2000-02-03 08:44:59 UTC
It does not seem possible to set quotas larger than a bit more than 4
Gbytes. I suspect a problem with an unsigned long overflowing or similar.
The bug is particularly weird on multiuser machines with large disks
where it actually forbids any reasonable administration of disk space.

When you set with edquota a value larger than 4194303 blocks
((2^32-1)/2^10) the actual quota is set at XXXXXXX - 4194303
