[ferret_users] time dimension error?

I'm getting an unusual error with a time dimension within Ferret V6.0

yes? use file.nc
 *** NOTE: Units on axis "lev" are not recognized: sigma_level
 *** NOTE: They will not be convertible:
 *** NOTE: minutes since 2007-05-08 12:00:00:
"unitsSINCEsinceyyyymmddhhmmss -4713DAYDAYS sin" in netCDF variable:
 Maximum characters:   48
 *** NOTE: cannot parse "units since date", date= "inceyyyymmddhhmmss
-4713DAYDAYS sin" in netCDF variable: time"; leaving units string

When I undertake a ncdump on the file, the time attribute appears to be
fine, and there doesn't appear to be any additional gremlins in the

> ncdump -h file.nc
float time(time) ;
                time:units = "minutes since 2007-05-08 12:00:00" ;

Is someone aware of this as a possible error in the V6.0 release?

I'd appreciate any input from people who can diagnose the problem here..
