userx should be allowed to exceed 25293M here - that is the
"soft" limit.  It is the hard limit that one may not exceed,
and after a period of time (default 7 days iirc), the soft
limit becomes the hard limit - this is how all quota systems
function, I believe; certainly XFS and the other filesystems
on Linux behave this way.

Can you show the repquota output when the user has exceeded
the hard limit, or does that not happen?

thanks.
