It's definitely just burning CPU for the fun of it:
USER PID %CPU %MEM VSZ RSS TT STAT STARTED TIME COMMAND
root 20800 95.8 0.0 408 308 p3 R 1:31PM 444:04.67 quotacheck -v /mfbd

I don't think I've encountered the same bug, though it may be related,
or some other manifestation. At least find can't find anything on that
filesystem other than the couple of directories owned by root and the
files and single lone directory owned by my own user-id (1000).
Of course this isn't giving me any good vibes about using quotas on a
production web server hosting many thousands of personal web pages. :-(
