Hmm, quota are still vanishing again when running quota -f. So it seems
there is still something wrong.
Everything was working fine until I issued quota -f after 1 day of cyrus
running and suddenly some quota files are removed, including my own. There
was however no I/O error in the output - everything from the output looked
normal. It also didn't correct any quota usage values, it just removed
some of them.

Any ideas where to look now?
