I am not suggesting that anyone would do this on purpose. More likely,
the code was truncating the names.

I have seen it. I understand you want first-hand evidence.
Note that it's hard (impossible?) to see this with the normal tools (like
nmblookup) since they truncate the name at the first nul byte. I noticed

...but again, it was a while ago and I just don't have the details handy.
