quota woes


Yesterday I installed another disk in my private server, and now I 
thought it would be a good idea to also set quotas on it, of course to 
prevent the users filling the thing up...

I added /dev/hdc to fstab, did `touch quota.user`, `edquota -u <user>` 
and `quotaon /home3` (where hdc is mounted). Now every process 
accessing the drive, including quotacheck, repquota, quotaoff, umount, 
touch etc, is hanging and won´t even be kill -9´ed.

Any clue on what I did wrong (and, hopefully, what I can now do other 
than reboot ;-) )?

Poking around in /proc at one of the hanging processes:
ka:/proc# cat 14746/status 
Name:   repquota
State:  D (disk sleep)
Pid:    14746
PPid:   1
Uid:    0       0       0       0

SigPnd: 00004102

an strace immediately hangs itself...
