Subject: EMPRESS misinterprets Cedar file name

When I empressed John Maxwell''s lisp notes file from Lisp, it turned up on the printer with a file name on the leader page of "[]<>LispNotes.tioga" (rather than, "[Phylum]<Maxwell>Lisp>LispNotes.tioga"). The fact that the extension is ".tioga" indicates that the file name was put in the press file by Cedar. Is there some funny format for file names which Cedar uses and which Lisp misinterprets?'

The press file was made from a file whose name actually was []<>LispNotes.tioga.  Cedar uses "[]<>" instead of "[Hancock]<Cedar>" as a shorthand for the root directory of a local machine.  (Thus almost all of the files on a Cedar partition begin with []<>)'
