No, you just don't have to care about that. Unserializing an array
with a wrong string length generates a Notice error, but the
unserialize is still successful. And the maybe_unserialize() function
suppresses errors on the call to unserialize. So it'll still work and
the string size will get fixed the next time the option is updated.
