Well, the code does exactly what you tell it to do.
"(defvar *sendbuffer* (make-array 6 0))"
is a string that contains a CONS (hence a t_cons; and BTW, you have one
misfeature in your code and a error :) )
Consider the string
"(I am a cons)"
type_of(c_string_to_object("(I am a cons)")
return? Also, what about
