> /dev/rsd6h: bern fixed: files 983 -> 7932
> /dev/rsd6h: jordan fixed: files 0 -> 98

1) Repquota is broken in that it doesn't give you the correct Numbers.
Quotas of single Users can be gotten correctly by quota -v. Available
Patches are 100965-01 (quota console msgs), 101039-09 (repquota, obso-
leted by:) and 100999-44 (newer Rev? Lots of Kernel Stuff).
2) Don't run quotacheck on a live Filesystem, it's not Modification-safe.
