[Dovecot] Trash and quota

I can't seem to find the magic combination to get dovecot to ignore the
trash folder when counting quota. I've got 1.0rc15 and using maildir
quotas. Not being able to trash messages when over quota is quite

the docs suggest the following:
plugin {
  quota = maildir:storage=10240:ignore=Trash
but as my quotas are defined per user via mysql DB, I'm thinking that I
need a modified version such as:
plugin {
  quota = maildir:ignore=Trash
Which does not work.
just in case it's a semantic problem, I also tried:
plugin {
  quota = maildir:ignore=INBOX.Trash
which also doesn't work.

I need other ideas of what to try to make it work if you please.
