error message seem to indiacate that directional light is a spotlight? Please help

Has annyone encountered these errors in Maya?

warn 302032:while defining light "sunlightshape": spotlight has bad spread (cause of cone angle)

error 081016:shadow map: spread of spotlight "sunlightshape" is too small

What i dont get is why i get this error when sunlight shape is an directional light.

But the big issue is that my sunlight shadow is too unaccurate (i assume it has something to do with the messages)

Until recently i worked in maya software with dmap shadows, but i shanged to mental ray (still dmap), but the same problem is when i try raytrace)....its when i changed that the problem started..

Can annyone help me out with this one?
