It's a bug I introduced in r8144... I forgot one *can* assign strings to
0-d arrays, and strings are indeed one sequence type.

I'm going to back that changeset out, since it was only a cosmetic fix.
That particular part of code needs some cleanup (it's a bit too hairy if
things like this can slip), but I don't have the time at the moment to
come up with a more complete fix.
