Hmm. What if you used 'xfs_quota -x project -s -p /path/to/new/dirs name'?

Those warnings refer to not having a project id set in the inode core, and
whether a directory will set it's project id into the inode cores of whatever
you create inside. Without that project id set in the new files you create,
the quota subsystem won't know which project quota to reserve blocks
against. That's why your block usage wasn't changing.

Maybe the first try failed to find the new directory? I'm not sure.
> But I would think the block usage should update automatically.
Could you cut an paste the procedure to you used to create the new directories?
