Summary0000151: Incorrect documentation for string.unsafe_set_char
DescriptionJames Cussens found that the documentation for this standard library predicate and function doesn't match the implementation. The documentation says that it is a constant time operation but it involves a strcpy.

The unsafe part of the name says that there is no bounds check and that a strlen call isn't performed.
TagsNo tags attached.

The documentation refers to the commented out mode of unsafe_set_char, which
is constant time. The problem is that the mode that is enabled isn't.

This was fixed in commit f71b5f20.
