This seems to be a bug related to PEEKC/READLINE; at any rate, the ASKUSER keylst option of $$ doesn''t seem to work right.'
I''ve edited the sources to bypass this problem (at least in Interlisp-D) by calling PROMPTFORWORD in the "[" case, rather than a recursive call to ASKUSER.  The fix will not be apparent until the next loadup.'
