Yes, that's exactly how it should work and it works like this for me.

I was writing the code this afternoon during a programming course
while I was simultaneously working on the task given by the
instructor, so yes, it's possible there are still bugs in it. :) It's
hot off the presses and is not tested extensively.

However, the code is not complex, so it should work more or less
correctly. I don't know why you get these results. Hopefully, someone
else tries it too, so that we have more information.

BTW, the heart of the sorting is the function anything-adaptive-sort
which sorts the candidates according to variable anything-adaptive-
history. It's not a long function, so maybe someone who understands
enough lisp does a peer review and discovers quickly what the problem
is which I miss.
