Unfortunately, there isn't a better way -- this is something that came
out of the implementation between 1.1 and 2.0 because of a major 
redesign of the debugger but we still need to re-add a good way to 
deal with long strings that are not easily accessible from the debug 
probe.  I've increased the priority on this task.
