        I don't of
	anything that says that Common Lisp must treat quoted general vectors
	differently from quoted strings.

    Actually, CLtL (p. 78) is specific that an implementation only collapse
    objects which are EQUAL.  I personally think this is inconsistent and a
    bug in CLtL.

Thanks, I somehow missed seeing that in CLtL.  I agree with you that this
is inconsistent.  Actually, just about anything in Common Lisp that has
anything at all to do with equality seems to be out of whack.
