[PD-dev] mystery type generated by [list trim]

A student just discovered this strange behavior.  Basically, if you  
get something that generates a symbolic atom that has numeric data in  
it, you can then create a mystery type by feeding that thru [list  
trim].  Don't know exactly where the problem is, but something fishy  
is going on.  My guess is that [list trim] should output a float.
