CVS head has had substantial pathname work committed to resolve
various ansi incompatibilities as revealed in the ansi test suite.  I
can look into pinpointing where this issue arises if needed.  But just
a note -- we intend to implement readtable-case (another missing ansi
feature) shortly.  When done, to my understanding, you can set the
readtable to convert to uppercase automatically.

Please let me know if this issue is pressing, or whether we can rely
on 2.6.5 until 2.7.0 is ready.

Take care,
