On a Linux version, using V4.53, for same command, I get correct output:

Interesting ports on cnan0402s001.stores.fr-prod.edcon.co.za
22/tcp   closed ssh
53/tcp   closed domain
110/tcp  closed pop3
143/tcp  closed imap
4564/tcp closed unknown

I cannot reproduce this with Windows XP SP3. Do you have something set
in the Windows shell that makes it split arguments on commas?
