The seek error is coming from quotacheck, I am guessing there may be a
uid (or gid if you are doing quotas per group) that is invalid (really
large or negative).

I would either:

	find (filesytem here) -nouser -exec ls -l {} \;

or

	recompile the quotacheck application to list the file entry
	that is causing the error.
