Based n what you've said I did some further checking on both my 
production v2.1.16 system and my new v2.3.1 system and confirmed that 
they both behave exactly the same way.

My php code apparently :) I think I wrongly assumed there was a problem 
with Cyrus because Net_Cyrus crapped all over the screen when trying to 
query the quota information for a mailbox that has the quota set to -1.

I'll have to take a closer look at the php side of things. Thanks for 
restoring my sanity.
