Quotas on 6.2

I understand quotas were broken in 6.1.  I am testing 6.2 where I  
thought they were working again.  However, it behaves considerably  
differently from 5.x.  I set both a hard and soft limit on a user to  
the same value.  Adding disk usage to that user past that limit  
succeeds.  quota shows the limit as having been exceeded but with a  
grace period of 7 days.  I don't want a grace period, but a hard  
limit.  I used edquota -t to change the grace periods for the  
partition to 1 day (per the man page).  However, it still shows a 7  
day grace period with quota and the limit is not enforced.  Did I  
miss something or is there still a problem with quotas.  Thanks.
