    I have an issue on a server where user accounts and their quotas are being misreported.


    du -shc /home/user

    will yield one number, for example 120M.


    quota user

    will yield another number, for example 130M.

    The disparity just keeps growing over time.

    Quotas are only enabled on the /home partition.

    I have found no superfluous files owned by that user:

    find /home -user user -print

    Running /scripts/fixquotas always fixes this. But why am I having to continually run fixquotas to keep the quotas reporting correctly?
