Summary0001805: Long URLs crash dot

I'm trying to make an interactive SVG file where clicking on an entry
pulls open a new window and writes a table of summary statistics about
the node. I've been doing this with javascript and just a big
document.write command. However, when the URL string exceeds a certain
length (0002348:0000500 chars), then dot will crash when attempting to generate
the SVG (using just standard "dot -Tsvg -Kdot" command). Reducing the
length of the URL string fixes the issue. Unfortunately, I've tried to
think of other ways to write a new window on the fly, but it would be
really beneficial to keep everything in the single DOT file somehow.
I did try putting the same string in the SVG output and there was no
length problems there.
Steps To Reproduce

  a [URL="'','','location=1,status=1,scrollbars=1,width=400,height=400');w.moveTo(100,100);w.document.write('<html><body>

Ok, this is a really long URL link, which isn't horribly likely unless you're doing some pretty crazy stuff, but it really should work, as it does when I insert it directly into the SVG file. The following is just basic filler to get to the required string length to cause dot to crash. If the length is shorter, everything works fine.
