Lab 13.2: Creating "bigfile2" that passes quota doesn't print warning on Ubuntu 14.04

Following Lab 13.2 on Ubuntu 14.04, I noticed that when I create a file that passes my "quota" (the soft limit, I guess), I saw no warning about passing my quota. The output from "quota" reflects my passing the quota. Creating the file that passes the hard limit does properly report the error message.

Does Ubuntu allow reporting the quota warning as an option, or does it just not do it?
