In System 78.44, ZMail 38.5, microcode 840, on Lisp Machine Fifteen:
(apropos 'stream 'zwei) and wait for a *more* and then type break.
At this point:
() => GLOBAL:NIL
Most other symbols, e.g. T, package etc. get trapped upon evaluation.
This is not a bug. If you break in the middle of a program that has special
variables bound (in this case PACKAGE), you should expect to be in the middle
of that program, not at top level. It is a bug that the who-line didn't
display something in the package field, to tell you that the package
was different than what it had been; I guess NIL must mean something special
to the who-line routine.
