Congratulations! You are the 500th person to be screwed by this bug.
The problem occurs only when reading from the TTY as opposed to a file.
The problem is that while TYIPEEK does not gobble the character
from the "main read stream", it does swallow it in such a way
that it foils the heuristic end-of-S-expression guesser that is used
by the rubout processor to decide when an S-expression has finished.
Suggestion to HIC: maybe the rubout processir should be changed so that
*leading* spaces (as opposed to embedded ones) cause a force-feed?
