doveadm-backup verbosity?

according to the man page doveadm-backup, the verbosity switch "-v" 
should do the following: "Enables verbosity, including progress counter"

However, i see no difference running the following command with or 
without the "-v" switch:

 >>doveadm -v backup -R -A remote:myhost

The command itself works without problem, two mailboxes are correctly 
back-upped, but the output is only an empty line. Not sure if this is 
expected behavior.
