My bad. Right now I was trying with a "clean" setup where the user had
no quota enforced (0 soft, 0 hard). I set a quota with 1.1.11 and it
worked, then I upgraded back to 1.1.14 and it still works.
I'm really sure I had problems with my previous testing setup, but that
might have been with the 1.2 rc and/or with quotas enforced on "/"
instead of "/home" (if that can make any difference...).
Sorry for the noise. Flavio : Can you check to make sure that your user
has a quota set for the filesytem, just in case?
