The closing " of a string is omitted when truncation occurs due to *print-lines* in pretty-printed escaped output

Bug Description

What I do:
(progn (write (format nil "This is~%a test.") :pretty t :escape t :lines 1)

What happens:
"This is ..

What I expected to happen:
"This is .."

SBCL version: 1.0.42
uname -a: Linux dynamorph 2.6.32-30-generic #59-Ubuntu SMP Tue Mar 1 21:30:21 UTC 2011 i686 GNU/Linux


Come to think of it, I think the output should be:
"This is.."

Is the additional space between "is" and ".." conforming and intentional?...

Changed in sbcl:
importance: Undecided → Medium
status: New → Triaged
