The problem was introduced in changeset is [svn r12067][1]:

r12067 | vvoutilainen | 2009-07-27 22:10:46 +0200 (Mon, 27 Jul 2009) | 2 

Changed paths:
    M /trunk/abcl/src/org/armedbear/lisp/clos.lisp

Better initarg checking. Fixes CHANGE-CLASS.1.11, MAKE-INSTANCE.ERROR.3 

The problem can be tested by attempting to load an ASDF system defintion 
as follows:

  	(asdf:operate 'asdf:load-op :abcl :verbose t)

which produces the error

	Invalid initarg :VERBOSE.

but probably can be reduced to a simpler test case involving functions 
with &key arguments after &rest.

Filed as [bug #62][2].  Thanks for the report.
