Well, I've researched the protocol for FINALIZE-INHERITANCE in the
AMOP docs: you can't have an uninitialized class after returning from

This probably means that your original change was right. However, that
probably also means that the (early) call to std-finalize-inheritance
in std-after-initialization (or whatever it is called) is incorrect:
you can't try to resolve a class until you're trying to instantiate it
the first time.
