(let ((*print-readably* t))

(print "#<abc>"))

--> Error: #<abc> cannot be printed readably

However, I'm printing a string containing something which looks like an unreadable object. Not an unreadable object itself!

The patch below fixes this and doesn't create any new regressions in the ansi test suite. However, why was this bit of code there? Am I missing something???
