Bug Description

After upgrading to xenial, the -F option returns faulty output especially when used with field character 'n'.

OS version --> xenial, lsof --> 4.89 :

# lsb_release -rd

Running lsof with '-Fn' lists some entries starting with 'f' for e.g. f5, f8, f11 below: (hostnames/port no. changed below)

# lsof -a -iTCP -sTCP:ESTABLISHED -P -Fn

-------

While on precise it still seems to work fine:

OS version --> precise, lsof --> 4.81

Running lsof with '-Fn' option in precise doesn't show anything like 'f10,f8,f5,f11' that's seen for xenial as put above. (hostnames/port no. changed below)

# lsof -a -iTCP -sTCP:ESTABLISHED -P -Fn
