Quite late comment after working down my batch of unread mail:
The patch was *not* *only* to avoid fixed length buffers - it was
invented to stop mummer from *crashing*. I do not remember the
case exactly nor do I find the data any more but I *clearly*
remember that we actually had example data which were causing
mummer to crash without the patch.
