I think Steve's answered everything here and I agree that
a more recent version of the quota tools could resolve the
problems you are seeing.  If not, let me know.

Are you using Debian?  The versioning scheme used there
is a bit different - 3.00pre01-15 is fairly recent, but
not quite the same as 3.01-final from sourceforge.  I've
forwarded Michael's explanation of his numbering scheme,
below.  I have successfully used the 3.00pre01-15 Debian
package with XFS for quite some time now.

I have never investigated the circumstances under which
xfs_repair decides XFS quotas are cactus and resets them
(I haven't needed to yet)... walk through the code if you
need to know more.  This might also be useful to you -
xfsdump will automatically detect a filesystem with quota
enabled and backs up the limit information at the time of
the dump (stores it in a new file in the dump) - see the
xfsdump man page.

It's based on the 3.00 release which was the latest stable release on
sourceforge. Then I added the latest CVS changes which makes it pre01. The
Debian version number has nothign to do with the CVS updates. At least no
necessarily. Sometimes a new update is made just to change some Debian

For the Debian package? As soon as 3.01 is released I will create a new
package named quota_3.01-1.
