Follow-up Comment #2, bug #45780 (project findutils):

I tested it under Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.  I have no clue if it is pure GNU find or
not.  However, you are right about the mangled output of my example.  Still, 6
characters is not enough; it should be increased.  In /var, I have a lot of
inodes using 7 characters (at least half).  In another of my filesystems, they
are all 7 characters long.  What about you?  Does it often goes over 6
characters?  Maybe its time to increase the default from 6 to 8?

And under Cygwin (Windows), it is worse.  16 characters are needed minimum. 
So if there is a conditional compilation flag and cygwin is detected, I would
increase it to 16 characters.
