My programmer (Massimo Paolucci) reports that when he copies the
substring and then calls draw-text* on the entire substring rather than
using :start and :end on the original string, the oversized record
problem goes away.  Seems like pretty strong evidence. 

So we will copy all our substrings until we hear from Lucid.
