        In ZWEI in Release 5.1, Experimental MIT 1.4, COLOR 5.1, FEP 18,
        on Lisp Machine Buddy Holly (3600):

        The sequence C-s c-Q c-G ends up searching for G rather than c-G,
        contrary to the documentation given by <help> during a C-s search.

    There is no such character as c-G in the character set that can be
    placed in files.  The control, meta, hyper, super modifiers can only
    be entered from the keyboard; they cannot be stored in files.  But
    maybe there is also a bug: what character were you actually searching

No bug, my spazz.  I forgot that it is a special feature that Tags
Search quotes control characters into greek characters when specifying
a search and that incremental search does not have that special
