I believe samba and quota is irrelevant.
The quota package checks disk space for users that own files on the linux box.
If a user copies a file to their home directory via samba, the linux
box doesn't care how it got there, but knows that the user has now added
some disk usage to his quota limit.

Does quota work with regular linux disk space?
Does quota only fail when you add disk usage via samba?

My guess at first is that quota isn't setup quite right.
Perhaps re-read the man page and docs to check that quota is working 
Then try to overload a users disk quota via samba and see if 
that works.
