    Typing '|A| gets a symbol with the proper print name, however
    the printer prints it as "A".  '|A| however prints like it should.
    Apparently an all zero number in the pname list is ignored?
The reason that '|^@^@^@^@A| prints correctly is to prevent a screw where
a null byte anywhere in a word would cause the remainder of that word to be
ignored.  LISP now ignores trailing nulls.  Unfourtunatly, ^@ in printnames
is not fully implimented and I strongly recommend you do not use them....
