SYMBOLCONC, STRINGs, and other things being D.E.A.D.

    Date: 5 December 1980 16:49-EST
    From: Kent M. Pitman <KMP at MIT-MC>
    In Maclisp, with STRING loaded, (SYMBOLCONC "FOO" "BAR") gives a circular
    .  .  .
This is entirely and wholly due to a buggy SENDI file installed by RWK
yesterday at 15:05:46 -- the problem is the failure of the new SENDI to 
set up the variables SI:CLASS-MARKER and *:CLASS-MARKER.   Not only does 
SYMBOLCONC give "bizarre" results, but any use whatsoever of any data 
interfaceing to the CLASS system is effectively dead. 

Fixed in SENDI 97.

RWK: do a SRCCOM on SENDI to see what I changed -- I believe that the
     second BOUNDP in the .SXEVAL is the loss.
