[Samba] get quota command bugs?

First of all: Thanks Samba-Team for a job well-done on Samba-3.0.0 (nice 
new features)

Now some problems:

1. We're use Veritas filesystem on our RedHat AS 2.1 server and quota 
don't seem to work at this moment (/usr/include/sys/fs/vx_quota.h is 
missing). So I thought that using "get quota command" would do the trick 
(just call vxquota and parse output). But nothing happend!!! Script was 
OK. After poking around in lib/sysquotas.c I found that "get quota 
command" was only called if HAVE_SYS_QUOTA is defined. I thought that 
"get quota command"should always be called upon when it is defined in 

2. The man page of smb.conf seems to imply that the output of the "get 
quota command" should be returned as one result per line. This is 
wrongf: all results must be returned on one line comma seperated. Also 
the "set quota command" has some docu bug (some nroff tags are shown).

3. In the Samba-HOWTO-Docu... it says on page 141 that mapping domadm 
group to the "Domain Admins" group is done with a "net groupmap add" 
command. I think this should be "net groupmap modify" command. I ended 
up with a new "Domain Admins"-group having another RID which lead to 
some confusion (I am a domain admin but not).

Keep up the good work,
