This crash should be fixed in trunk revision 107723.  Now even your
crazy test case doesn't crash, just says that it ran out of memory
after a while (kids, don't try that at home).

Btw, it looks like MS-Windows menus cannot have strings longer than
64K, although I cannot find this documented anywhere.
