Bug Description

1. Turn on "pretty output"
2. Type 1000!

Desired output: the result, a very long number as MathML
Actual output: a filled black rectangle

Looks like pango or cairo is hitting some size limit and going berserk. Need to figure out what to do with very large numbers; probably just wrap them at a certain width. Or maybe use ellipses.
