I got this one figured out, and made a bug report (ID:6590) . There's a 
problem with the
IDP_ResizeArray(...) function in idprop.c. IDP_Resizearray(...) allocates
0 bytes for the new string, since idp_size_table for strings is set to zero.

> string's length + 1.  Strings in ID properties are always assumed to 
> have the correct string_property->len set; this might be a bad idea, 
> and one I might be able to do away with via the magic of MEM_alloc_len.
