LSMW and leading zeros issue

I have created a LSMW that changes the site master record. This LSMW changes various fields on the site master including, amongst others, the telephone number field. When the LSMW loads the data from the source file, the LSMW packs the telephone number with leading zeros. This error also occurs with the field "house number". The source file does not have leading zeros on it. The LSMW appears to be packing the field out when it reads the source file. I suspect this is a bug but does anyone have any ideas on how to prevent this.

Many thanks.
