It turns out the systax error in fstab was causing all the trouble
i had it :
>/dev/wd0a / ffs rw userquota,groupquota 1 1
> /dev/wd0b none swap sw 0 0
> /dev/wd0e /usr ffs rw userquota,groupquota 1 2
and there should been a , after rw but still there was no warning.
So there is a bug somewhere the quotaon should give error in case the
comma is missing.
Since there was no error i was led to believe that quotas were turned on
when they were not.
Also the man pages realy need to explain the process of how to turn
quotas on and that quota.user files need to be created and all that.
Also in edquota man page there should be a display of what normal
operation contents would look like.
All i had was
Quotas for felix:
So i didnt know what to do.
