Heh... Did I say what my problem is? :)  No problem... no problem... I just
wanted to know the definitive answer, which you guys gave me!

Thank you both for your quick answers.  FYI, we are running on a version
older than 2.2.12.  However, we will be likely upgrading to Linux and the
latest version of Cyrus maybe in December.  It is unlikely we will patch
our software right now to accomodate quotas larger than 2GB, but maybe it
won't be up to me on that... Only 1 user is requesting a larger quota than
that right now.
