1) Version 2.2, LM performs as I stated. I don't have 2.4. Personally,
I prefer this performance.
2) CLtL, p.281, "if NIL appears in the a-list in place of a pair ... ASSOC
will ignore the NIL in the a-list and continue to search for an actual
pair (cons) whose car is NIL."
If 2.4 returns NIL, then it is a bug.
