this works as specified:

see 6.2.4:
If this property is multi-valued, this method throws a ValueFormatException

in general, the toString() should only be used for debugging purposos,
giving a human readable description about the object. IMO, it should
not modify the state of the object (e.g. read a stream, modify fields)
or throw uncaught exceptions. so the toString() of a value or property
should not return the content of the value if it would modify the

btw: the Value or Property is implemented by the jcr api and
jackrabbit. this has nothing to do with 'cqfs'.
