Well, JONL has just made n^n small changes to the source, so it's kinda hard
for me to figure out if he's changed anything relevant.
It is possible that you're causing it by clobbering a string. This is one
problem the MACLISP STRING implementation has.
The internal symptoms are that STR/:NO.STRINGS is getting to be larger than
STR/:GCMARRAY. I'm not sure why. Just SETQing it down to 1- the size of
STR/:GCMARRAY doesn't make the problem go away, it gets upped the next time
a GC is run. I suspect a fencepost, but I'm not sure where.
