In the CVS version the function mstringp is missing in nparse.lisp. This leads to an error when trying to differentiate something:
e.g. try diff(x)
fixed locally by copy from maxima-5.13.0
Logged In: YES
Are you using imaxima?
Imaxima has not yet been updated for the latest cvs versions,
which do not use mstringp.
Logged In: NO
I don't think so, I downloaded the cvs version via
cvs -z3 -d:pserver:email@example.com:/cvsroot/maxima co -P maxima
I can't duplicate this. Grepping through the source tree, I don't find mstringp anywhere.
Perhaps try updating from cvs? Can you provide a transcript and if possible a backtrace?

I just did a complete cleanup, re-download, rebuild, still the same:
(I'm running debian linux, kernel 126.96.36.199, amd64)
Maxima encountered a Lisp error:
Error in COND [or a callee]: The function MSTRINGP is undefined.
To reenable the Lisp debugger set *debugger-hook* to nil.
Are you typing "maxima" from the shell or using another interface?
What lisp are you using?
I'm using wxMaxima 0.7.3a. I tried clisp first, now GCL2.6.8pre (built with --enable-ansi)
Just tried maxima from a console: no error there...
What can wxMaxima have to do with this?
it works ok with the cvs version of wxmaxima
(if only after I copied wxmathml.lisp to /usr/local/share/wxMaxima)
sorry for the trouble... that's what you get when you mix inconsistent
mstringp has been added back in for compatibility.
