Description of problem:
When trying to use the "magic cookies" in a .message file so that quota
restricitions and current disk usage will be displayed to ftp users, all I get
back is a zero.  I was using the %B, %b, and %Q options as defined in the man
pages for ftpaccess.  I made sure that the user had some of their quota space
used up so I wouldn't get a zero back.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Set up quotas on the partition that users will be ftping to
2.create a .message file in the users directoy that they are ftping to and add a
line(s) similar to this:  Total amount of space allocated is %B.  current usage
is %Q.
3.Login to your ftp server and see what is displayed in the welcome message for
the user.

Actual Results:  Instead of a number returned of the amount of disk space that
was being taken up by the user, I got back a zero.  

Expected Results:  I should have gotten back a number that was equal to the
number of blocks that was currently allocated to the user and how much disk
space they were currently using.

Please use vsftpd instead. wu-ftpd is not maintained anymore.
