I swear, the default double quote in maclisp seems to be
busted in some strange way.

One example is the file MAXSRC;TRANSL > which uses many
"strings". If you call the function TRANSLATE_FILE in macsyma
you will note that in the function PRINT-TRANSL-HEADER
that many (PRINC "FOOO" STREAM) things seem to output
randomness into the file.

I don't expect you to be able to track this down from
example, but I suspect you have some idea of possible
causes of this bug.

This bug also shows up in the I/O done by the macsyma PRELUDE
file. Presently no macsyma source files can be installed
because of this bug.
