Not all that surprising really, as both the {quote}
and {quotation} environments already try to adjust
the normal paragraph layout, as do {wrapfig} and {picinpar}. 
So combining these would be most awkward.

My advice would be to stick to just one of the latter,
and include extra markup to try to emulate what the
quote environments do.

Or try using {minipage} to narrow the width,
with {wrapfig} or {picinpar} inside, for the wrapping.
