On my NetBSD-current machines I have strict quotas in /var/mail.  (The
users tend to leave things in their mail spool, so this encourages them
to clean up often.)  However, people's mailboxes still grow past their
quota.  I believe this is because mail.local runs as root and thus
doesn't care about quotas.

I'd call this a bug in mail.local.  Is there a way to fix this besides
hacking mail.local?
