bug#14935: 24.3.50; pcase (or) UPAT fails?

Thanks Andreas and Stephen, 

I actually tried unquoting with comma before reporting. But it never
occurred to me that strings should be backticked. Strings are selfquoted
and, in my understanding, the following should have worked:

   (pcase "^" 
     ((or "^" "%") (message "here")))


The documentation says that strings are UPATs so 

   (pcase "^" 
     ("^" (message "here")))

works. Then docs also say that (or UPAT UPAT) is also an UPAT so (or "^"
"%") should also work. Do I miss anything?

Thanks, 

    Vitalie
