Not that recent. It happens from time to time. At first only in SLIME,
but now it fails frequently on the command line too.
Reliable way to trigger it is to try to quickload, for example
closure-html, but it happens also on other libraries.

I tried to check whether closure-html really produces infinite loops in the type propagator but I am unable to even start building it. It seems they have some bogus pathnames there, because I get (with the new error rmessage in CVS) something like

Condition of type: SIMPLE-ERROR
Pathname without a physical namestring:
:HOST NIL
:DEVICE NIL
:DIRECTORY (ABSOLUTE Users jjgarcia quicklisp dists quicklisp software closure-html-20101006-git resources dtd)
:NAME Entities-Latin1
:TYPE UNSPECIFIC
:VERSION NEWEST

Could you verify? It is unsupported to have :unspecific components in pathnames.
