quotaon barfs with device label with lower than root mount point

From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.72 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2 i686)
Description of problem:
I have a file system called /vol/yakut/video - the quotaon command seems to
barf on this pathname but is ok with toplevel ones during the startup
scripts. Other pathnames (all mounted at / level) seem to work fine, it's
just this one which is mounted three levels down the tree which it barfs
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Give a filesystem a name with a mount point several levels down. The
filesystem was made with this label, and the LABEL=/vol/yakut/video is used
within the /etc/fstab with no problems for anything other than the quotaon
Actual Results: It barfed when called from the rc script. Life continued.
Expected Results: Not barfing! Accepting longer, sub-root level mount
points within filesystem labels.
We (Red Hat) should really try to fix this before next release.
I noticed while shutting down the machine last night that quotaoff makes exactly
the same error report. Not a surprise really....
fixed in 3.01pre9-1 and later.
