Strange. In any case, I haven't really played with quotas at all, so it
would very well be a bug in the handling of writes when the quota is
exceeded. The only thing is that I think the server is responsible for
the the quota check. So I can't see a reason why the client would
intervene and attempt to store an empty file.
