Bug Description

Using Natty.

1. Add your computer to Ubuntu One using an account that has folders shared with it from other people.
2. Connect to Ubuntu One
3. Click on "Cloud Folders" tab in Control Panel
4. The user's available storage is displayed next to the names of people who have shared folders with me.

Knowing another user's available storage is probably not a big deal, but this might make some users feel uncomfortable and I don't see how it adds to the functionality of the Control Panel.

Matt,

This is intended behaviour since users can modify other's users quota usage by writting to shares.
Therefore, I'm closing as Invalid.

After a talk with Roberto and Cristian, we agreed that, if we have time, we will hide the available storage for those users that only made read-only shares to me.

Re opening and setting priority accordingly.
