| Fixed in CVS, thanks for the report.

Thanks I got around to checking this, and this will not be an issue to
slime users, but the fix, REPLACE-STRINGS-WITH-SYMBOLS conses a new list
AND the call to the function is in a critical path: it is called
heavily. TRACE REPLACE-STRINGS-WITH-SYMBOLS to see how often this gets

BTW I haven't seen the test case (the problem) which required this
fix in the first place
