I'm not sure but I think a brute force method is to remove all quota files
in /var/lib/imap/quota (or wherever that directory is in on your server).
Of course cyrus-imapd should be stopped while doing it. If I remember
correctly I did this once to "fix" broken quota on a server. But don't
blame me if it breaks your server...
