edquota -t broken in FreeBSD 7.1?

    Am having the same problem as this fellow had with older versions of FreeBSD:


    Specifically, edquota -t fails to set custom grace periods properly on a FreeBSD 7.1 server. It always resets itself back to 7 days.

    You can turn quota off, remove the quota files manually, run edquota -t, disable & re-enable quotas for a user, turn quota back on, run quotacheck, and it's still 7 days.

    edquota -t works fine on two different FreeBSD 6.1 boxes. But not on this 7.1 machine.

    Any suggestions besides editing quota.h manually & rebuilding the kernel?

    Does anyone have custom grace periods working on a FreeBSD 7.1 server?
