It does if you don't specify a length: fixing this requires changing
every spot in the code where a "string" was read from or written to a
property to make the code handle the length properly. It's not hard,
but it's a huge amount of work (and probably not worth it, as you can
store arbitrary byte buffers as Nasal objects anyway).
