This happens for the argument being a constant or a
variable.

(C1) ident(2);
Improper argument to IDENT:
2
-- an error. Quitting. To debug this try
DEBUGMODE(TRUE);)

If you give me the matrix-storing format, I can try to
run up a clisp ident function and send it in.

Thanks much!

    Works for me too with gcl 2.6.5 and XP.

    (%i3) ident(2);
    (%o3) MATRIX([1,0],[0,1])
    (%i4) build_info();

    I'm closing this, since it appears to work fine with CVS
    versions.
