Thanks this is the exact line of code and how we wanted to change it but we
weren't sure about the effects. For now this works.

This is a bug in Lua 4.0; it was already reported by ET:

(The change is in lstring.c:122)

would be the "other problems". (lua_newuserdata will return NULL if you
ask for zero bytes, but that is OK.)
