DIRECTORY with :WILD-INFERIOR Fails (was Re: [armedbear-devel] HEADS UP: CL:DIRECTORY :RESOLVE-SYMLINKS default changed to nil)

Unfortunately, the [new implementation of :RESOLVE-SYMLINKS has broken the use of :WILD-INFERIOR components to DIRECTORY][ticket-344]. Amongst the prominent victims here is Quicklisp, so this clearly needs to be patched soon.  I think the problems lie entirely in directory.lisp, for which I am currently refactoring the [LISP-DIRECTORIES-WITH-WILDCARDS function][2] to see why it is failing to recurse.  This is proving to take a bit of time, so those who want to use Quicklisp on trunk should revert and/or fix [r14619][].

Sorry for the inconvenience.
