[lug] Understanding User Quotas

Hi, I'm having trouble understanding user quotas. I think it's 
because I'm missing something re: block size.

If I look in a users directory with du, I get the following:

   [root at ranger ]# du -sk ~nemo
   2154100 /home/nemo

Using repquota, I get something different:

   [root at ranger ]# repquota -a | grep nemo
   nemo      -- 1115460 1200000 1500000           8341     0     0

Why is usage being reported as 2154100 w/ du and 1115460 w/ 
repquota? Thanks.
