Limiting disk usage by journald

On one of my systems, journald is using over 1 gig of disk space. So I
tried to limit it in /etc/systemd/journald.conf like this:
However it seems to be ignored. After a
# systemctl restart systemd-journald.service
I see the following:
Dec 31 18:45:01 <hostname> systemd-journal: Permanent journal is using 1.4G (max 4.0G, leaving 4.0G of free 78.5G, current limit 4.0G).
Dec 31 18:45:01 <hostname> systemd-journal: Journal started
What should I do to limit the journal size?
Thanks for any ideas,
