(alphalessp nil 'D) and (alphalessp 'd nil) are both NIL in XLISP
on AI.  I'm not a LISP internals hacker, but my hypothesis is as
follows.  Last time I checked, ALPHALESSP began with instances of
a type-checking macro names SKOTT or something.  It's my understanding
that that macro just checks the type bits to see if they correspond
to being a symbol and doesn't do anything special for NIL.  So it
doesn't think NIL is a symbol, and it doesn't retrieve the PNAME
properly.  A couple of JUMPE's or something might be in order.
