Comment(by darkjames):

 it's standard behaviour of ps, from man 1 ps:

 euser      EUSER    effective user name. This will be the textual user ID,
                     if it can be obtained and '''the field width
                     or a decimal representation otherwise.

 default width for user is I think 8, if you want more, you could patch
 procps, or use your own format instead of 'u', for instance:

 $ ps axo user:30,pid,pcpu,pmem,vsz,rss,tname,stat,start_time,bsdtime,args

 So it isn't bug. hth
