This bug is easily reproduced; just type <function> <help>. However
it seems to be deeply rooted, as the same error crops up if you then try
to send a bug report, either from the debugger or from ZMail. That's
why this message isn't in the form of a bug report.
I think something is finding a string where it expects a flavor object.
Error messages look something like:
The bug is in your init file.
zwei:*host-for-bug-reports* "OZ" ; Where to BUG- people.
zwei:*host-for-bug-reports* is supposed to be a host, not a string.
Many other people have reported this, but apparently our replies haven't
hit everybody. Therefore, I am sending this to LispM-Uses.
This applies for Symbolics machines running 5.2.
zwei:*host-for-bug-reports* must be a host object, not a string. If you
don't like the default value (I don't know what it is) and if you want
it to be OZ, you should use (net:parse-host "OZ") instead of just the
string "OZ". Everybody please update your init files.
