I'm detecting it by running a script which just checks for the existence
of the user.xxxx file in the quota dir. Another indicator is complaints
from users who don't have the quota bar in the webmail anymore :)

That's really difficult because there are usually around 200 - 500 imap
sessions running and the error happens for ~1 users quota / hour.

I'm currently trying to get the error again by running quota and tracing
it. Tracing cyrus master + childrens is almost impossible because it slows
down too much and the volume is too much.
