I dislike hard-coding the length, because it makes it less obvious that we
are talking about the length of the string.  Since we are using sizeof, and especially
since we have hard-coded the string in the sizeof, any decent compiler will optimize
this to the hard-coded value anyway, so the performance benefit really shouldn't
exist.  I will fix the bug by just using sizeof("(none)") in the code and commit
today.  Also, C++ comments can really mess up some C compilers.  In the future, please
only use C style comments.  Great catch!
