I'll be honest, I thought I was going crazy at first! It seemed weird
that things like this would break things like this between versions.
I'd love it if there's some other explanation!

Nope, I'm running on Gentoo with kernel 5.4.45 and in Docker containers
running on that computer. I've attached a tarball containing the Docker
build context and some scripts I used to test this. The build-images
script will build Docker images using the ABCL 1.7.0 jar running with
Buster's default JRE (11), Stretch's default JRE (8), the JRE in the
openjdk:11-buster image, and the JRE in the openjdk:8-buster image. The
test-run-program script will try to start a child process using each of
the images.

The first value of LISP-IMPLEMENTATION-VERSION is always "1.7.0" and the
third is always "amd64-Linux-5.4.45-gentoo".

I get the errors when the second value is one of:

+ "OpenJDK_64-Bit_Server_VM-Debian-11.0.7+10-post-Debian-3deb10u1" (docker label debian-buster)
+ "OpenJDK_64-Bit_Server_VM-Oracle_Corporation-11.0.7+10" (docker label opendjk-11-buster)
+ "OpenJDK_64-Bit_Server_VM-AdoptOpenJDK-11.0.7+10" (native)

I don't get errors when the second value is one of:

+ "OpenJDK_64-Bit_Server_VM-Oracle_Corporation-1.8.0_252-8u252-b09-1~deb9u1-b09" (docker label debian-stretch)
+ "OpenJDK_64-Bit_Server_VM-Oracle_Corporation-1.8.0_252-b09" (docker label openjdk-8-buster)
+ "OpenJDK_64-Bit_Server_VM-AdoptOpenJDK-1.8.0_252-b09" (native)

I've also attached the full output of running the test-run-program
script from the tarball (after build-images has already been run).
