No, not really.
There were two independant quota bugs in my cyrus-imapd rpms. The first
was from the cyrus-imapd sources, which you have fixed in CVS and I
included the patch into the rpms. The second was in a patch I include in
the rpms which is not part of the cyrus distribution. This patch has also
been fixed by it's author and I updated the rpms this morning. In the end
everything seems to work fine now.
