Re: sxhash and *package* interaction

What about test sxhash.23 in this file? http://svn.clozure.com/publicsvn/openmcl/trunk/tests/ansi-tests/sxhash.lsp and this note at the end of the clhs entry on sxhash "Although similarity is defined for symbols in terms of both the symbol's name and the packages in which the symbol is accessible, i...

sxhash and *package* interaction
