are those field names "Owner nam" or "Owner_nam"? I didn't think dbf
fields could have spaces; if two words maybe it is just reading the
first and getting confused as there are multiple "Owner"s? Or is dbview
just translating the names?

did you try sqlite instead of dbf? (doubt any improvement, but maybe
worth a try)
