We were able to get the latest emerauth running, (File size of 91648) but
found some interesting problems. If the user is overlimit, all writes to
the ftp directory result in the file being truncated at 0 bytes. This is
terrible as existing files are erased. This will continue to happen during
the entire transfer even if the directory size drops below the max.

Second - Where does the dll store the current dir size. I upped the limit
on several user accounts, but had to restart serv-u to get the dll to
re-read the limit. This sounds like a caching problem.

After running for a day or so, we had a number of people say that when they
logged in, they were dumped into the root dir and had write access. We
have never had a problem with this on the old dll.

I like the dir limit, but the emerald client does not hava a field to
adjust this, so it must be done via sql.
