The definition of WITH-OUTPUT-TO-STRING given in the Common Lisp
reference manual states that:
"If string is specified ... the output is incrementally appended to the
string, as if using VECTOR-PUSH-EXTEND if the string is adjustable, and
otherwise as if using VECTOR-PUSH."
This implies that after a non-adjustable output string is "filled" any
extra characters output to it will simply be dropped and no error will
be signalled. Is this correct?
