[Dovecot] quotactl bug?

more on the strange quota error....this is in BSD, with quotas referenced on an NFS, and users provided by YP/NIS

quotactl(Q_GETQUOTA, /.amd_mnt/crock/vol/v_user1/jdoe) failed: Operation not supported

this looks strange to me, as the specification for quotactl states the function Q_GETQUOTA:

     Q_GETQUOTA    Get disk quota limits and current usage for the user or
                   group (as determined by the command type) with identifier
                   id.  The addr argument is a pointer to a struct dqblk
                   structure (defined in <ufs/ufs/quota.h>).

this directory path is not a valid UID...rather, its my user home directory path!
