This is intentional - it would be super slow to do otherwise.

Would it be better to signal an error indicating that in-place mapping is unsupported? The current behaviour leads to more subtle bugs.

I really hate this API, but since the sole purpose is SRFI-13 compatibility I've gone ahead and fixed it to update in place.

If you know you might want to use the utf8 egg, you should never use string-map! in programs.
