as long as you only have a quota set on INBOX (that is only one quota-root for 
the complete account-hierarchy at toplevel)

It does! It sets a new root for all folders under inbox.Trash and inbox.Trash 
itself overwriting the quota-root set one level higher on inbox!

Setting a quota-root explicitly on the trash folder solves your problem! You 
could even set the quota of inbox.Trash to 0 which means infinite.
