List questions

I was very surprised with the result of the following commands :

19> [40].
20> [45].
21> [60].
22> [80].

In fact, the result is displayed as a character corresponding to the
ascii code in the list.

This is quite surprising at first. In a complex command I search for a
bug because the function was not supposed to return strings.

I guess this has no consequence on the program logic, but you must be
very careful to avoid be trapped by what you see.
