The POSIX standard does not include -ls, so we can do whatever seems sensible.  Hence we no longer truncate the username.   This problem is now fixed in the development code, and this fix will be included in the next release.

This problem is caused by the "%-8.8s" format at line 228 of the source file find/listfile.c.   I need to check the POSIX standard to find out if this is the required behaviour.

find 4.1.20 strips long (>8) user/group name for '-ls' output:

$ ls -dils foo-file
16906680 0 -rw-rw-r--  1 u234567890 u234567890 0 Oct 26 17:35 foo-file
$ find foo-file -ls
16906680    0 -rw-rw-r--   1 u2345678 u2345678        0 Oct 26 17:35 ./foo-file
