The problem is the old pretty printer, which does not interact very well 
with FORMAT. In any case, since you really seem to wish just a printed 
representation of a structure object, you should always do something 
like (let ((*print-pretty* nil)) .. (format ...)), since the pretty 
printer will produce always additional spaces in all implementations 
(But not so many as with ECL's old pretty printer :-/)

I will look further into this.
