[Openmcl-devel] Possible problem with host-namestring

I think I'm now less confused <smile>.

Start OpenMCL fresh and try:

Welcome to OpenMCL Version (Beta: Darwin) 0.13.6!
? (host-namestring #4P"ccl:foo;bar.bat")
"ccl:"

Looking at the definition for host-namestring in MCL and OpenMCL shows 
that, sure enough, OpenMCL appends a #\: to the return value. This 
doesn't seem right to me but maybe it is. I'm happy to work around it 
if this makes the rest of OpenMCL better.

;; MCL
(defun host-namestring (path)
   (let ((host (pathname-host path)))
     (if (and host (neq host :unspecific)) host  "")))

;; OpenMCL
(defun host-namestring (path)
   (let ((host (pathname-host path)))
     (if (and host (neq host :unspecific)) (%str-cat host ":") "")))

Thanks,
