[OpenAFS] Win32: Free space of readonly volumes

I'm having the problem that AFSRDRFsd doesn't report the correct quota
state/free space when mounting an AFS path with a readonly volume in
the root directory. Instead of the real free space it always reports 0
bytes for the drive which is wrong. This leads to problems when
copying files to a RW-submount in that drive which definitely has
sufficient free space while e.g. the Windows explorer only evaluates
the free space of the drive. I tried setting a big quota value for the
root volume but this doesn't help. Free space remains at 0 bytes. This
happens with the 1.7.x series on Win32. Is this behaviour intended and
if so, is there any workaround for the file copy issue?

Thank you very much in advance!

Best regards
