omshell format error in hardware-address output

We operate dhcpd as a component of a web authentication system for about
2000 users and use omshell for performance reasons to get the MAC/IP
pair for a specific client (we have short lease times and parsing the
dhcpd.leases simply takes too much time in our case).
I have just encountered a strange behavior of omshell (Version 3.0.7)
with one of the clients which uses a locally set mac address
(66:55:44:33:60:40). The lease data which is print out is wrong
formatted: The hardware-address should be printed out in the usual
format as 66:55:44:33:60:40, but omshell prints out "fUD3`@" (including
the quotes). Obviously the six bytes of the hardware address are
converted to ASCII characters and quoted. I have seen this so far only
with this specific mac address.
I hope someone can take a look at this. Many thanks in advance!
Here is the input/output of omshell:
set ip-address = <client ip>
ip-address = <deleted>
state = 00:00:00:02
dhcp-client-identifier = 01:66:55:44:33:60:40
client-hostname = "DUMMY"
subnet = 00:00:00:07
pool = 00:00:00:08
hardware-address = "fUD3`@"
hardware-type = 00:00:00:01
ends = 49:7f:87:17
starts = 49:7f:86:63
tstp = 49:7f:87:71
tsfp = 49:7f:87:71
atsfp = 49:7f:87:71
cltt = 49:7f:86:63
