[Bug-tar] possible bug while using cvvRP options

I'm using tar to perform backup and provide me with info on files that were backed up.

tar is called like:

# tar cvvRP <dir>

and contents piped to storage.

this produces line like:
block 33494: -rw-r--r-- igorl/users 1809 2004-02-13 10:33:55 apr-0.9.5/threadproc/netware/signals.c

I've discovered strange behaviour when file is owned by user, who does not exist (i.e. no passwd entry for UID).

drwxr-xr-x  26   501 games     1264 2004-11-17 02:17 apr-1.0.1

this is how untared APR looks like (when untared to preserve ownership).

when I do:

# tar cvvRP apr-1.0.1 > storage

I get (sample form whole output):
block 0: drwxr-xr-x /games            0 2004-11-17 02:17:21 apr-1.0.1/

note the missing username (I would expect UID).

# tar --version
tar (GNU tar) 1.14
