Description: I was connected to {ERIS}<LISPCORE>NEXT> and I said'
I got a browser window with the message'
  "No files in group {ERIS}<LISPCORE>NEXT>({DSK>*.CM);*'
Note parens and final >.'
If I moved the parens in my call to EVAL format'
(FB {DSK}*.CM)'
I get the same result.'
However, if I type in the line with no parens at all':'
it works properly.'
Should behave more sensibly when parens are typed!

Workaround: '
