Sounds like perhaps your user database is corrupted or out of sync.
What happens if you run "finger alias" from the shell?

Probably worth running pwd_mkdb(8).

How did you create the qmail users and groups? The qmail-users
package should have taken care of them for you, or bombed out if
it couldn't.  Maybe there's a bug in that process.

It ought to work. I have /home mounted softdep on 2.0.2_STABLE/i386,
and am running qmail with the following options:

$ pkg_info -Q PKG_OPTIONS qmail
netqmail bigdns realrcptto syncdir viruscan
