Summary0001616: Overlong tooltips cause corruption with svg output

Some of my automatically generated graphs had very, very long tooltips.
This is ok with eg. cmapx outputs, but causes problems with svg, as
the strings get corrupted after 6646 characters.
$ dot -T svg -o kk.svg
$ xxd kk.svg | grep -A2 -B2 '0000 '

The corresponding position in the dot file reads:

 ssh on TCP:22, [[attachment:nessus%%%%% this text is not shown anymore

The corruption looks like it might be result of memory handling issues,
which could have some security implications. The main annoyance for me
has so far been, though, that svg parsers (Firefox, Inkscape) frown
upon the corrupted file and refuse to handle it.
Additional Information


This problem is fixed, as I recall, in the graphviz-2.22.2 stable release.
