I have narrowed the problem down to two items:  There is a reboot  
called for in the handbook during the quota setup that I probably  
didn't do.  Also, I was testing by having root copy data owned by the  
user with the quota.  While that changed the quota used, it may not  
have triggered the quota check.  In either case, after rebooting  
today and having the user do the copy, the hard quota is now enforced  
properly.  Thanks.
