Another thing... (chown and quotas)

Sorry to bother y'all again, but I think I may have run into another
feature. This time on a pre-2.0.31 kernel (+ 5 fixes).

Our server runs with quotas and I'm responsible for mirroring stuff on
our FTP site. (Europeans - get your kernels at!)

So, after I've sorted the permissions, I like to chown them (as root)
so that they don't chew my quota. Only I did this today, and they did
anyway. quotacheck fixed this, but is this a known feature, a deliberate
thing or, perchance, a little buglet?

<thinx: Hmm... *two* VFS probs in as many hours... perhaps I should
learn how VFS works, and learn to fix 'em>

Cheers anyway,
