(make-hash-table equal?) is broken (in 2.2)?

I have a need for a hash table with equal? as the comparison operator
(the keys are lists of symbols), but hash-table-get doesn't seem to
work (even if I try to lookup a key that is eq?). It seems to work OK
if the keys are a single symbol. Attached is a short transcript
showing the problem. I don't have a chance right now to delve into
the hash-table code, but if anyone has a hint (or a fix :-), I'd
appreciate it... I did verify that hash-table-hash does return the
same value for different, but equal? lists (although this isn't
evident below...)
