there is a bug in SBCL, that I encountered while using
apply (it merely seems to be related to values list).
What happens is, that an error message cannot be printed
For a simplified example, try
(apply #'format nil 1)
That will drop you into the debugger, and if you type "err"
the error message will not be shown.
A patch is attached.
