This is not a bug; this simply indicates that Edwin was unable to allocate a buffer large enough to fit all of the output you printed. The limit may have been reached faster than the window was redisplayed, perhaps -- I can't test this since I don't have any Windows system available --, in which case a newer version of Edwin in CVS may clarify the issue by raising the limit on the buffer size so that you see some output.

At least, this is what I am guessing based on the information provided; someone who can test it on Windows should verify my hypothesis.

(define loop ()
(display "hello world\n")
will give me a string-aloc error in both stable and latest windows versions
