When using the Filr Personal Storage User Data Quotas to assign limits to groups, the assigned limits may not apply to users if they are members of nested groups.

Consider the scenario with a nested group:
             |_ L1.1_group
                                 |_ L1.1.1_group
                                                       |_ user1
                                                       |_ user2
                                                       |_ user3
If the site administrator assigns the quota limit of 1500MB to the top-level L1_group, then all the users in the nested group L1.1.1_group should get this quota limit assignment. However, this only works for existing members in the nested hierarchy and if any new users are added later on to the nested groups, they do not get the assigned data quota from the top-level group.


A fix for this issue is available in the Filr 2.0 Hot Patch 3, available via the Novell Patch Finder.
