Subject: STRING and `
. . .
The bug here related to hunks which weren't VECTORs, thus
`(foo #(a b c)) would win OK. However, backquote on hunks has
been losing for a long time.

Oh, well. Another bug bites the dust. I made a patch to NILCOM;BACKQ and
recompiled it so that the `"FOO" bug doesn't occur. . . .
So I took this opportunity to fix up the whole thing, including
other kinds of backquoted hunk lossage.
For the record, there is a simple place in the (new) code where
Q-sequences are backquoted over, and it would be a trivial thing to
make ` work over, say, STRUCTures (if only we knew what we wanted to
do about printing them!).
