Are you copying over the quota file?  If you're not setting quota_db in 
imapd.conf to something other than quotalegacy, you'll find the user's 
quota file under $conf_dir/quota/

If you copy that over, the quota won't be zero.  It may not, however, be 
correct depending on whether or not you're dealing with the potential 
for mail delivery to that mailbox during the move.
