Directory list problems on solaris 2.5.1

After trying the latest version of Winscp I found the following bug/feature. On Solaris 2.5.1 we sometimes get directory listings as such:

drwxr-xr-x   2 briodevtestbsdb2dv      512 Oct 28  2002 briodevtest

When the username for the file is 'briodevtest' and the group name is 'bsdb2dv'. This results in an error listing that file or directory and all the subsequent contents in the directory in winscp. The only way you can tell where the user name ends and the group name begins is by looking at the offset of the rest of the line. I will provide some correct directory listings in case it helps.

Normal contents:

drwxr-x--x   2 1043     staff        512 Jun 29  1999 cry

drwxr-xr-x   2 cwq      other        512 Apr 18  2001 cwq
drwxr-xr-x   6 cyk370   staff        512 Mar 11 09:47 cyk370
drwxr-x--x   2 1011     staff        512 Mar 12  1998 d0b

Incorrect contents:
drwxr-xr-x   2 ellery_troystaff        512 Mar  9  2001 ellery_troy
