[CM] Trouble using tunings

Well, it appears that at some point I changed the value of the *print-case*
variable from :upcase to :downcase (which I think looks nicer).  I would
never have imagined that the printing behavior would affect anything
important, but changing it back does fix the problem!

Basically, if *print-case* is not :upcase when a tuning is defined, then the
'a4, 'c2, etc. symbols will not work later, no matter what the value of
*print-case* currently is.  *print-case* can be changed to :downcase after
defining any tunings and it appears that things continue to work correctly.

Thanks very much for the help.  And sorry to bother you over an obscure
"user error"!
