limit-bytes-total doesn't work if you enable CoA in Usermanager

Hi folks, just to let you know...
If you are running a hotspot setup and want reporting of how much data a user has left, to be displayed to that user, you can use the "limit-bytes-total" variable in the status.html file.

It works so long as you don't enable the CoA for the router in Usermanager.
A bit strange, I know, but there it is.

The reason that we need to enable CoA is so that UM can disconnect an authenticated user when their 'time' expires, so we do kind of need that variable turned on. But we now lose the ability to inform users how much data they have left. Go figure...
