    I would appreciate comments on the following "bug report" i just

    I am iterating over a list and simultaneously adding things to the end of
    the list with NCONC.  It works fine until I get down to the final iteration.

I don't think the language should define what happens in this case (even though
it "works" in my implementation, as it happens).  Such iterations should be
written in terms of lower-level primitives, such as DO or TAGBODY+SETQ.
