Brandon reported a bug some months ago involving lowercase and tosym.

I have found the cause but not the solution.

op_tosym does an ident_get(string_chars(str)).
string_chars returns a pointer to the start of the string data.
This string may not be null-termintaed, causing ident_get to be confused.

I do not know how to solve this efficiently. I would apreciate input on this.
