    Just spent the better part of an hour trying to figure out why a brand new clients used quota was 158MB no matter what I did, turns out his UID was tied to /usr/src/linux-2.4.19/

    Maybe the authors should set aside UIDs for themselves that won't potentially be spread out to the production servers and possibly used for a new client.

    Either that or remember to chown files to the right UID/GID before calling it a day :)

    That is normally left to the system administrators to ensure that proper UID/GUID's are set when installing anything on their system.

    Common practice is after every install make sure permissions are correct on files and directories.

    Yes, but in the case of CPanel I'm assuming these files update nightly with the automatic update, if I'm wrong about the kernel src then please accept my apologies. I'll have to kick the folks leasing me the server then :)
