When typing an expression in the lower (html) window
of Xmaxima, and then going to edit, change program
to 'maxima' and click "mark for eval", one gets an error
message:
"list element in quotes followed by "]" instead of space."
The expression is not marked for evaluation. It worked
fine in 5.5.
BTW it would also be nice if the File/save to file in the
lower window would save the file in html format. Right
now it exports it to text even if the file is in html.

    With Maxima 5.15.0cvs + CMUCL + Linux:

    After selecting "Maxima" from the list of programs on the "Edit" button on the middle bar in XMaxima, I can highlight some text and select "mark for eval" from "Edit", and a "RESULT" box is displayed. But when I double-click on the selected expression, I get an error message, "wrong # args".

    Double-clicking on predefined expressions sucessfully causes the result to be displayed.
