Assigning quota on temporary tablespace in Oracle 10gR2

We have recently done Oracle 10gR2 installation, and we were trying to assign quota to users on temp tablespace. OEM isn't working out and queries are throwing error: ORA-30041: Cannot grant quota on the table space. I have read through this link:

http://forums.oracle.com/forums/thread.jspa?threadID=372904

in which contributors are saying that ability to grant quota on temp tablespace was a bug which was fixed in Oracle 10g. That doesn't make a whole lot sense to me. Because in older versions of Oracle the temporary tablespace was actually a "normal" tablespace just full of sort segments.

Now, Oracle has distinguished "temporary" as a different, unique type of tablespace ? Is there any work around ? Anybody aware of any official statement from Oracle regarding this ?

Thanks

The documentation for the CREATE USER statement:

http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E11882_01/server.112/e17118/statements_8003.htm#i2065278

States that you cannot specify quota on a temporary tablespace.

Not sure if there is a workaround as I have never tried it.  You may want to look into profile  settings, they may have something in there.

Hmm, that makes it pretty clear... That one was for 11g, but its the same case for 10gR2 , given here

http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/B19306_01/network.102/b14266/admusers.htm#i1006230 

I would give it to you though.

Still I would appreciate if somebody could tell me a work around (o'course tried and tested one) :) .
