Fixed in r12426 which isn't really going to be testable on trunk until 
we fix/undo the problems with r12425 METACLASS work.

The failure with COMPILE-FILE.18 occured because as an optimization, I 
had introduced the restriction that packed FASLs had to end in ".abcl" 
which turns out to be a bad idea.

However, I don't get this ClassCastException at all, so there may be 
another problem here.  If you had done an incremental compilation of 
ABCL, you might want to try rebuilding from scratch.
