[bug-mailutils] disk quotas and mbox append

Dear All,

I have a question about disk quotas.
How does mailutils/mbox deal with disk quotas?  Does anybody have any 
experience with them? Do they work well with Linux quotas on kernel 2.4
over *NFS* ?

I've looked through the mail archive and cannot find any infos about
this.  I've looked through the code a little but cannot pinpoint what
exactly happens when, say whilst appending a message to a mailbox, disk
space runs out due to quotas. Does the mailbox get corrected or
truncated in some expunge procedure?
If after writing to the mailbox you get the first "Disk quota exceeded" 
error at close() what is done about this?

Thanxs for any insights.
