Subject: Re: disk quota overriding
I think that there is only one way to fix it - it's to disable making
*hard*links to directory with mode 1777.
[ML] But only if the quotas have been turned on.
BTW, has chown been "fixed" to the ludicrous SysV semantics that
the root and owner can chown a file? If so, the latter has to be
disabled in presence of quotas on the volume--otherwise:
chmod 777 big_file
chown root:wheel big_file
cat /dev/zero >>big_file
This joke used to work on HPUX 10.something which kept the
owner-may-chown semantics even in presence of quotas. It was not funny.
(I don't know whether HP has fixed that).
