Daniel, XEmacs gurus,

could you please do

M-: (format-spec "/[%m/%h]%p" '((109 . "scp") (104 . "alicia") (112 . 
"/tmp/teste"))) RET

and tell me what happens?  It evaluates to "/[scp/alicia]/tmp/teste"
for me, on Emacs.  If you can, could you find out why Daniel is
getting this error?

Of course, if it doesn't work for Daniel to reproduce this error
given the M-: command above, then things will be difficult...
