This was a bug in MrEd with 3m, now fixed in SVN.

An internal static variable wasn't registered with the GC. Normally,
that sort of bug leads to a crash. In this case, the variable's value
was only used with `eq?', so there was no crash, but the `eq?'
comparison failed after the 3m GC moved the value.
