It's a bug somewhere, but good luck tracking it down.

I have Lingo VoIP service here in the US, and when calls are forwarded
from my Lingo phone to my cell phone, occasionally the numbers show up
as 01144NXXXXXX, the same bug you're seeing.

In my case the calls are all domestic US calls so it would be
extremely unlikely that the bug was due to them being routed through
the UK.
