What I meant was that I also had the problem that quota have been
corrected when running quota -f. I also had the problem of wrong
calculated quota with the unpatched 2.2.6, but not with the patched one.

For the vanishing quota problem, it seems that the problem is from a bug
in one of the patches I include in my rpms, not from cyrus-imapd itself.
I'll provide more information after further investigation.
