That cannot happen on the inbound side. short strings are encoded with a 
1-byte length prefix, so there is no way for the client to send a long 
shortstr. And in a standard broker setup it cannot happen on the 
outbound side either since the broker does not create shortstrs (except 
for error messages, which get truncated at 255).
