This is bit of a blind gamble, but you can try this definition
instead of the default one:

   % #1 = firstname, #2 = von, #3 = surname, #4 = inits, #5 = junior
   \def\invertedshortauthor#1#2#3#4#5%
     {\bibdoif{#2}{#2 }%
      #3%
      \bibdoif{#5}{ #5}%
      \bibdoif{#4}{, #4\unskip}}%

Cheers, Taco
