How often are quota's updated in 3.2-STABLE?  I seem to remember the output
of quota -v being fairly close to realtime on my 2.2.8-STABLE system.  Now
it seems I have to run quotacheck before quotas get updated.

Did I do something wrong this time around?  Since this machine only gets
rebooted when necessary, it appears to be a problem.

I know I'm over quota at this point... this could be a security risk,
someone could just fill my file system and I'd be none the wise since it
doesn't seem to keep up with these things.

Now I KNOW something's wrong.  Check the following output out... after I've
run quotacheck it says that I'm over quota.

This is a test of my quotas

and file test2 does exist.  So it's not even enforcing quotas at all.  What
did I do wrong?

----
8:04pm [cjm2@cartman] /etc -> grep quota /etc/rc.conf
check_quotas="YES"              # check quotas on startup (or NO)
enable_quotas="NO"              # turn on quotas on startup (or NO).
----

Also, options QUOTA is in my kernel config, and I have rebuilt and installed
the kernel, several times, and I did do a make clean.

What have I missed?
