[armedbear-devel] trouble with Maxima test suite

I have updated ABCL from svn and rebuilt it and updated
Maxima and rebuilt it with ABCL.
It seems to mostly work except that in a new instance
of Maxima launched via
(asdf:operate 'asdf:load-op :maxima)
I find that run_testsuite(); pretty soon runs into some
errors and grinds to a halt at rtest14 (pretty early in
the test suite).
However I find that load(orthopoly); before run_testsuite();
seems to avoid the problem. I don't remember that this
work-around was necessary in previous versions of ABCL;
I probably last updated ABCL a couple of months ago.
orthopoly is a Lisp package which is supposed to be
loaded automatically when any of the functions in the
package are called for the first time, e.g.
$hermite has the 'autoload property.
Another clue? When I enter quit(); after the unsuccessful
run_testsuite(); I get a Java exception as follows.
java.lang.IllegalStateException: Current state = CODING_END, new state = CODING
(etc ... I've suppressed the rest of the stack trace.)
If you can suggest some additional info I could try to
gather to aid debugging, I'll be glad to do so.
Thanks for your help, and all your terrific work.
