That's someone's guess. The reality is that the fileserver does not
actually add up the space used by files in a volume, ever. It keeps a
counter in the volume header, which is adjusted as files are created and
removed. If something happens which causes damage that then has to be
repaired, fsck removes a file, a file somehow becomes orphaned, etc, then
the quota can become different from actual usage.
