Yes. The 'chop' call is not evaluated inside the quoted expression.

There are two ways to handle it:

1. If the string is constant, you can use a read macro

    (match '(@A ~(chop "CITY") @B) ...

2. Otherwise you must build the pattern at runtime

   (match (append '(@A) (chop Varstring) '(@B)) ...
