However, those of us who are mainly Scheme programmers (and who lurk here
to pick up general higher-level tips) might indeed make that assumption,
especially since a naive translation to Scheme does give the original
poster's "expected" result:
> (let ((l (do ((i 0 (1+ i))
((= i 3) (reverse r))
(set! r (cons (lambda () i) r)))))
(map (lambda (x) (x)) l))
(0 1 2)
Just another reminder that there are subtle gotchas between Scheme & CL...
