symbol printing problem

We observed the following with guile 2.0.11 -

scheme@(guile-user)> (define sym '912828S7912810RS)
While reading expression:
ERROR: In procedure string->number: Value out of range: 7912810

Is this expected?  Do we need to enable any read-options?  If this is
expected, it appears that if we are creating symbols from random data, we
need to do a symbol->string before printing it.  Is this the recommendation
or should we do something else?

Thank you!
