[R-sig-ME] quasi-binomial family in lme4

I am analyzing some data that seems to require a quasibinomial model,
but the model returns incredibly small standard errors (and
correspondingly inflated t-values) that do not seem to be justified
given my data.
I've been reading (I think) all available posts on problems with the
quasi-binomial family in lme4. But I can't judge from the posts
whether all issues with the  quasi-binomial models in lme4 are assumed
to be resolved. So, I am wondering, are there any known issues with
quasi-binomial models in lme4?
