Problem with ange-ftp-date-regexp

This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
 not to your local site managers!!
Please write in English, because the Emacs maintainers do not have
translators to read other languages for them.

In GNU Emacs 20.6.1 (i386-*-nt4.0.1381)
 of Tue Feb 29 2000 on buffy
configured using `configure NT'

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

Our file system generates funny group id's (which are NUMERIC) on a
Unix file server when they are accessed via Samba.  Ange-ftp is unable
to parse the ls listings of such files properly because of a bad
regexp used as ange-ftp-date-regexp.  For example, for the following

  -rw-rw-r--   1 udr      13        284509 May 21 00:55 bi-assertion-lan.ps

the regexp interprets "1 udr 13 284509" as matching the date-regexp
and the remainder of the line "May 21 00:55 bi-assertion-lan.ps" as
the file name.  This results in the file being inaccessible when
accessed via ange-ftp.  (This problem does not arise when the file is
accessed on the local file system.)

I have done a temporary fix to the date-regexp for my own use.  But,
the regexp needs to be fixed more generally in the emacs distribution.
