Your problem:

I am using ilisp 5.11.1 of 2002-01-13 according to the
xemacs package
listing, with clisp 2.27 on linux with xemacs 21.4.6.

IFF I have already started clisp using run-ilisp
when I hit spacebar after "the-biggest" my xemacs
hangs, and I must
type C-g to get it back. The workaround is to set
(setq ilisp-*arglist-message-lisp-space-p* nil)
in my ~/.xemacs/init.el. The other workaround is to
kill-buffer on
the *clisp-hs* buffer.

This also happens if I click on the-biggest and do
Ilisp->Documentation->Documentation
or
Ilisp->Documentation->Describe
etc. (In this case, the only workaround is to kill
the *clisp-hs* buffer, yielding a "You must start an
inferior LISP ..." message.)

I also submitted this bug report to ilisp@cons.org
using M-x ilisp-bug.

    I also see this on XEmacs 21.4.9 and all(!) ILISP versions I could
    find (using CLISP and CMU CL as inferior lisp): 5.11 5.12.0 and
    the current CVS version (26.9.2002). So it could be a XEmacs
    problem as well, since I used at least 5.11 quite a while without
    error.

    This problem seems to be going with the "processp... " bug.

    This seems to work fine now using
    xemacs 21.4.14, ilisp snapshot 20021222
    (as downloaded from sourceforge today),
    and clisp 2.31.

    Thanks for looking into it.
    I hope we will see this snapshot become a
    formal release soon!
