The structure the compiler generates for a variable is a big hairball.
Printing it without that method caused my lisp to stack overflow :) So
I reached in and grabbed the variable.
But I realized that in one case the printing included packages and in
another didn't hence the mismatch.
One thing that looked wierd was the beginning:

transforming ((lambda (g172 &rest g173)
               (invoke-restargs replaceAll

That #:temp13766 should be g173. But perhaps I'm seeing some compiler
thing that I don't understand.

You need to run bin/abcl, rather than cd bin; ./abcl.
