It's 1e50 % 2^32 Bytes of RAM :)

And even though 2^32 is a lot, consider what happens when we compile Lua on a signed 16-bit system (I haven't done or seen this, but I assume it's possible). It's much easier to reasonably hit this string-repeat limit in valid code on a 16-bit system. I agree, the code should definitely not silently fail.
