Big strings => panic

It seems MOO server 1.7.8p4 panics when a string gets extremely long (I'm
not sure exactly how long, but I would guess LONG long).
Code something like:

foo = " ";
  foo = foo + foo;

will panic the MOO.
I've seen this happen both on an HP 9000 and on a SPARCstation 20, both
running sysVr4.
I don't know if this has been fixed in 1.8.0. Spose I should have posted
this before now... <shrug>
For what it's worth...
