Please somewhat disregard my previous reply <g>, the restrictions on
the LENGTH of RealDigits' results are actually not greater than 16
before "Indeterminate" status results are returned. In the "extreme"
case of using such a value as 10^9, I gets

No more memory available.
Mathematica kernel has shut down.
Try quitting other applications and then retry.
