Hi Andras,

It was probably the partition on the client with /usr/coda/venus.cache
that ran out of space. Venus is only informed of the the size of the
file after the last close. This is great for performance, but makes all
forms of disk usage control pretty soft. So the venus.cache size is a
soft limit, and so are the quotas.

This has been discussed on this list so many times, that I'm amazed you
haven't seen any of those discussions yet ;)
