Continuing my feeble and futile assault on the bugs file, is it
possible that the behavior of BUG 266 was caused by the lis/addi LRA
David Lichteblau provided (sbcl-devel 2003-06-01) a patch to fix
behaviour of streams with element-type (SIGNED-BYTE 8). The patch
looks reasonable, if not obviously correct; however, it caused the
PPC/Linux port to segfault during warm-init while loading
src/pcl/std-class.fasl. A workaround patch was made, but it would
be nice to understand why the first patch caused problems, and to
fix the cause if possible.
perhaps the patch moved LRA into a problematic area.
