If you apply a string to a symbol, the following damaged error message appears:

    Some argument to EH:MOVE-INSTRUCTION, NAME, was of the wrong type.

Try compiling and running (defun foo () (funcall "foobarbaz" 'bar)), for
example.  This comes up in real life when someone tries to send a
message to a character string pathname (there is code in the old 40.1
system that does this; it is fixed in the new system).  I think this
error has been mishandled ever since there was an error handler on the
Lisp machine...
