After migrating and updating my IMAP server everything seems to working,
but the quota reports wrong information for *SOME* mailboxes, seemingly
at random

cyrus-imapd-2.3.12p2-1 (CentOS5)

The quota value is crazy wrong!

localhost.localdomain> info user.fred
  condstore: false
  duplicatedeliver: false
  lastupdate: 14-Sep-2008 00:32:16 -0400
  partition: default
  sharedseen: false
  size: 127583

-bash-3.2$ /usr/lib/cyrus-imapd/quota -f  | grep fred
       0          4401742 user.fred

-bash-3.2$ du -sk /var/spool/imap/f/user/fred/
225296	/var/spool/imap/f/user/fred/

I can believe the result of "user.fred", but the quota report is
clearly wrong.
