[rsbac] quotacheck versus rsbac.dat

dont think so

i tested on one of the user accounts with quota set to 100MB (102400k)
and tried copying a divx to the users homedir as that user

quota cut it off at exactly 100 MB (102400k)

so it seems to work adequatly ...

anyone else have a different experience with this ?

all it sais is Cannot get exact used space... Results MIGHT be

i assume it means it can NOT enforce quota in said dir, which, as far as
i can see, would not be a prob, right ?

anyway, pls post your ideas on this :-)
