There's a couple of things going on here. The first is that we accept the empty string as a valid module specifier. For HTML this has to be a URL or a relative path. For the shell we can do whatever we want but "" clearly should be rejected. The second is that the shell's FileAsString function to read the contents of a file doesn't cope well with errors. What's happening for this testcase is that we end up resolving the module's path to a directory and attempting to read that. The call to ftell() fails but the return value is not checked. In this case it returns -1 which we use as the length to read. When allocation fails we don't throw an exception which causes this assertion. The patch disallows the empty string as a module specifier and also tidies up the error handling in FileAsString.
