what does <Bad format hint> mean?

Sometimes when I display a variable in a running C++ program I get
"Bad format hint" like this:

int <keyLength>                <Bad format hint>

I would expect to see the current value.  Can anyone tell me what this
means?  If it's a ups problem rather than something in my program, is
it fixed in 3.36 or 3.37beta?

My system:
$ uname -a
SunOS newdevel 5.6 Generic_105181-28 sun4u sparc SUNW,Ultra-Enterprise
$ ups -V
ups version 3.35 (build date: Fri Sep  8 12:28:12 PDT 2000)

To the ups developers: ups is an amazing tool.  Thanks for making it
