Strange. When I did the merge I had to change one thing from the
branch: I had to bind *load-truename* to NIL or readFunctionBytes
would crash when loading compiled stuff. Now it appears that that
change breaks things and removing it makes them work again! Maybe I
inadvertently tested a hybrid situation when merging the branch?
Anyway, I removed that change: let me know if it now works for you.
