What I do is change the /etc/init.d/quota script to create a flag file in 
/etc when it shuts down cleanly.  Then on restart if the flag exists it will 
skip the quota check.  This way if there has been a crash then it will 
re-check but otherwise it won't.

The plans for ReiserFS include making quotas a base part of the file system 
with journal support to avoid having to ever do a quota check.  I expect that 
the Ext3 developers have the same plans.
