Gah.  I hate this kind of thing.  Is there an official max
property length in the documentation someplace?  (Yes, I'm
too lazy to look right now.)

As I suggested before, I'd really prefer to see this routine
factored out of icccm/.  It really doesn't seem to belong
there.  Move it into the property library, unless there's
one like it there already, in which case just delete it.
