Cyberduck shows Unknown or id# for Owner/Group for root or regular users.

Transmit 5 and Filezilla work fine and display the user/group name (e.g. root/root or myuser/wheel). The shows information correctly. I have tried it with both latest Ubuntu and CentOS.

I am using VPS Digital Ocean. Attached are shots from Cyberduck and console.

Which protocol? FTP/SFTP would carry this information on protocol level.

Then I’d guess cyberduck’s implementation of sftp is broken.
