Several errors in quota programs

From Bugzilla Helper:

There are several things that do not work as expected:
1) The program quotacheck hangs if there are named pipes in the
filesystem. It's probably trying to read from them or something.
2) The command quota does not work for ordinary users (permission
denied, even for the same user). When run as root, it displays
nothing (empty fields). repquota works as expected.
3) The amount of used blocks/inodes is not updated automatically (when
adding or removing files). It is only updated when another
quotacheck is run.
I emailed the maintainer Jan Kara. With patches for the 2.4.5 kernel and new tools
from sourceforge (version 3.01-pre7), all the above issues are solved.

quota-fix-2.4.5-1.diff.gz and quota-patch-2.4.5-1.diff.gz
3.01-pre7 now available via rawhide, and will shortly be released as official errata.
