for i in sbcl ccl clisp ecl ccl abcl xcl gclcvs allegro scl ; do echo
$i ; cl-launch -l $i -s asdf -f ~/bug/xcl-make-pathname.lisp; done 2>
/dev/null |& tee /tmp/foo
Everyone correctly replies #p"" except abcl and xcl that reply #p"/home/fare/".

the bug file contains:
(defparameter *h* "/home/fare/")
(defparameter *make* (make-pathname :directory nil :defaults *h*))
(format t "~S~%" *make*)

I wonder why I didn't detect the bug in abcl earlier. Cc'ing the abcl

Also, it's very annoying for cl-launch that xcl doesn't have a
--no-inform mode. Even more annoying when some output goes to
standard-output *after* I print my stuff and call quit. Can you fix

hierarchy. That's why politics can never help the weak, only swap roles.
