Hmmm. That's tough. How big can the buffer get? (It would do us no
good to just display part of it, since we don't know where the problem
characters would be.) We could have a heuristic that we display the
buffer if it's below a certain size, and don't if it's above.

Are you, um, volunteering? :-)

Yes, that patch would be uncontroversially welcome, I think!
