[squeak-dev] [BUG] [] storeString goes into a tight infinite loop.

Dave and Elliot and TWIMC,

Given that you can defend your end of things for not causing the problem. Who should take responsibility for fixing it?

So storeString as written has limitations. 
Where does that permit me as a naive users to type two words that will crash my system when executed?

I would expect [] storeString to print '[]'. What else should it print? Why should it try to do more than that? 
If it can't do that then why can't it give me an error message?

Who is supposed to take responsibility for the behavior of these two words. Why does the user have to deal with a crashed image?

Where is the documentation explaining what I should do to get what I really wanted?

It is all well and good not to take the blame but where is the one who takes responsibility for this?

Yours in perplexity and service, --Jerome Peace
