bug in ps - or is this old news?

I think I remember seeing subjects in netnews concerning ps bugs, but,
silly me, I ignored them.

I've observed that, when an executable has a 14-character name, ps
apparently doesn't know when to stop and so tacks garbage onto the
end of the program name.

Does anyone know of a fix or patch for this?
