Sharding on geo sometimes fails due to shard key being too big

      When writing objects with big arrays of geo coords, the writes will often fail with "Shard Key must be less than 512 bytes" error message.
      This only happens in a sharded environment, obviously, when writing to e.g. a single replica set without sharding everything's fine.
