I have read about XFS holding quota as matadata info in the journal,
but the rebuild did not work I think. I just rebooted the machine
because of nfsd going crazy (but this is another issue...) and no
quotas were found:

raman:~# mount
/dev/sda5 on / type ext2 (rw,errors=remount-ro,errors=remount-ro)
/dev/sdb1 on /mnt/raid/0 type xfs (rw,usrquota)
/dev/sdb2 on /mnt/raid/1 type xfs (rw)

raman:~# quota gurubert
Disk quotas for user gurubert (uid 515): none

raman:~# edquota gurubert
No filesystems with quota detected.

Kernel is 2.4.8 from mandrake _with_ quota enabled and compiled with
gcc 2.91.66

I did not have _that_ problem, but others...
