No crashes, just major slowness under OS X 10.7 that I haven't instrumented.  Your patches seem to run fine under my oi-151a server, which is a contemporary free Solaris environment with beefy hardware and "grown-up" I/O, so I will probably commit them after I finish analyzing the runs of the GCL-ANSI test and the CL-BENCH suite.  Since these patches mostly adjust the Java-side implementation of the Lisp hierarchy after defining a Java METACLASS and SPECIALIZER, I fail to see how they could be problematic.

Or someone else can just push the patches to trunk if they have the time.
