Description of problem:
We have a partiotion (size ~ 1TB) with user quotas turned on. 'repquota -a' and
warnquota used to work fine. Now, with the amount of data and users growing on
that partition (currently ~450GB for ~100 users), both commands stopped working
and terminated with a "Segmentation fault".
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run 'repquota -a' or warnquota
Actual Results: Segmentation fault
Expected Results: List quotas and send an email to people who are over quota.
# repquota -a
