Dear Robert san, Barton san, maxima users,

I just modified the code as suggested by Robert san,  in Github at

As I could not repro the bug Barton san has encountered, I cannot guarantee this fixes the issue, but worth a try.

Thanks and best regards,
Yasuaki Honda, Chiba, Japan

Maybe the first and last characters want to be #\Space. Just guessing.
Maybe it's simpler and clearer to write

  (setf (...) (coerce " /\ " 'list))
  (setf (...) (coerce " \/ " 'list))
