bugfixes since then, concerning the eval-when handling, too.
And the "eval-when"-stuff is probably the root of your problem.
Well, I had sent a patch to hack around this, since the problem came

lately. And few people seem to compile SBCL with CMUCL these days. :-|
As I wrote before, using cmucl-18c won't probably work.
One problem again - in using cmucl, as I see it just now, is that it
causes "warnings" about some "undefined" functions, when building

So, I'd recommend using sbcl-0.6.12, to build from the current CVS
