Hey Charlie, it's great to see you posting on the Emacs newsgroups!

I'm not certain what's going on.  Are you sure that representation means
circular structure?  Or is it merely labelling the object "ul" for
future reference then referring to it?  (See (elisp)Circular Objects.)

Also, how about consing up the strings with (string ?u ?l) or somesuch
to avoid 'em being treated as the same?
