The @ command ain't working.  Create a command, say:


Copy that line into buffer 'a' with the command: "ayy

Try to execute it with the command: @a

And nothing happens.  In NetBSD 4.0, or in a normal copy of nvi-1.81.6,
it will execute the "pwd" command and put the results into the document.


According to an unnamed NetBSD developer: Christos misread some parentheses 
when trying to fix an operator precedence warning, and changed the meaning of a 
complicated expression.
