a few bug fixes, a little tidying up..
from the NEWS file: changes in sbcl-0.6.1 relative to sbcl-0.6.0:
* changed build optimization from (SAFETY 1) to (SAFETY 3) as a short-term
fix for various type-unsafety bugs, e.g. failures with (LENGTH 123) and
(MAKE-LIST -1). In the longer term, it ought to become true
that declarations are assertions even at SAFETY 1. For now, it's not
quite true even at SAFETY 3, but it's at least more nearly true..
(Note that this change seems to increases the size of the system by
O(5%) and to decrease the speed of the compiler by 20% or more.)
* changed ALIEN printing to be much more abbreviated, as a short-term fix
for the problem of printing dozens of lines of distracting information
about low-level system machinery as part of the top stack frame
on entry to the debugger when an undefined function was called.
* tweaked the debugger's use of WITH-STANDARD-IO-SYNTAX so that *PACKAGE*
is not reset to COMMON-LISP-USER.
* Compilation of stuff related to dyncount.lisp has been made conditional
on the :SB-DYNCOUNT target feature, so that the ordinary core system is
smaller. The various dyncount-related symbols have been moved into
a new "SB-DYNCOUNT" package.
* tty-inspect.lisp has been renamed to inspect.lisp.
* unix-glibc2.lisp has been renamed to unix.lisp, and the :GLIBC2
feature has gone away. (When we eventually port to other flavors of
libc and/or Unix, we'll try to make the differences between flavors
invisible at the user level.)
* Various other *FEATURES* tags, and/or their associated conditionals,
have been removed if obsolescent, or given better documentation, or
sometimes given more-mnemonic names.
