exporting to stata with user-defined formats

when I try exporting SAS datasets to Stata the user-defined format names are truncated to 8 characters so are never found. Problem Note 31711 says that this was fixed in 9.2 but it appears not have been It also happens when exporting to SPSS.
I'm using 9.2TS2M3 on Win XP.

Contact SAS Technical Support for clarification and guidance with your problem. There is a link on the SAS Support website and at the bottom of the Discussion Forums web pages.

This is still a problem. When will it be fixed?

How are you exporting to SPSS?

I think there's the SAV and the SPSS engines which operate differently.
