Wow great catch...the date value of your hex conversion corresponds with what I see in dhcpd.leases. I can try and script for this, but should a bug be filed, or could this be a terminal issue (I get same result from console terminal and xterm/ssh session)?

I suspect this is just an anomaly cause by omshell's more
generic output algorithm. Because all four bytes of the ends
value correspond to printable characters, it displays it as
a string instead of the raw octects. A (failed in this case)
effort to be more user friendly.
Looking at the ord's of the four characters in hex:
"_sz-" ==> 5f:73:7a:2d
