I'd like to thank everyone who answered my problems.  The problem
with push was simple temporary insanity on my part (I noticed it
about 3 minutes after I posted the letter).  However, I do consider
it to be a bug when the compiler makes implicit optimizing assumptions
as in the use of eq when the function uses lists that are equal.  If
it makes things run faster, all well and good, but it should be set
by an optimizing flag or some such thing.  Also, it seems to me
that equal should apply to arrays as well as lists (I suppose I
could store my structures as lists, but the array processing seems
to be much faster).  But I guess these complaints are about
Common LISP and not Symbolics, so enough.  Thanks for your help.
