Shit. So I have to turn project quotas off. I can't accept the extra 
load for a simple move, as there are tons of data. Maybe the projet code 
could be redesigned to allow a simple move? Is it that complicated?

If I change from project to user quota - I guess the same would still 
happen? If so, I have to drop quota support, and build a script to check 
quotas manually. It's a pity. :-(
