Well, the code to handle Maxima strings as Lisp strings has been
around for more than a year, so I am kind of surprised that your
Maxima installation reports 5.17.1 ....
It seems possible that there is an out of date copy of stringproc.lisp
somewhere in your system.
What does file_search("stringproc.lisp") return?
Does "locate stringproc.lisp" at the command prompt show the
presence of more than one stringproc.lisp?

Given that stringproc.lisp hasn't changed since 5.17.1,
I think downloading from CVS won't help, unfortunately.
