Actually, it was a bug in 8y.etx. It does say


      \comment{The English opening single quote mark `\,\textquoteleft\,'.}

      \comment{The English closing single quote mark `\,\textquoteright\,'.}


      \comment{The English opening double quote mark `\,\textquotedblleft\,'.}

but of course the \setslot{145} and \setslot{147} should be \nextslot{145}
and \nextslot{147}. Still, fontinst can be modified (trivial change in
\make_ligtable) to better confine such typos, so that they don't cause
havok troughout.
