You seem to be using maildir++ quota with mboxes. Does that actually
work? I never intended it to work at least. :)

Anyway there have been a lot of mbox fixes since rc15. Also there has
been one mbox+quota fix after v1.0:

With v1.0 + the above patch this invalid mbox offset error should never
happen anymore.

I'm not sure why it would do infinite looping though, although I do
remember fixing one such problem with mboxes at some point.
