This AR could not be investigated because the test case file had been deleted.  I now have a test case but it is extremely obtuse and doesn''t warrant any priority.  I consider it quite likely thattthe same source bug was in my original test case'

I was into CLISPIFY in any case. This now CLISPIFYs as (X←(PROG1 <Y> --)), which has the same semantics and is perhaps clearer.'
By the way, I changed the Subject': of the AR from the "Function CLISPIFY''s but won''t DWIMIFY", since your original AR doesn''t really identify the problem enough to recognize it in a list of ARs with Subject only.'
Thanks for taking the time to come up with a simple test case.'
