Hi, Faré

I don't think the new feature for RMCL really working:

? (compile-asdf)
;Compiling "Macintosh HD:users:binghe:Lisp:packages:asdf:asdf.lisp"...
#P"Macintosh HD:users:binghe:Lisp:packages:asdf:asdf.cfsl"
? (load *)
;Loading #P"Macintosh HD:users:binghe:Lisp:packages:asdf:asdf.cfsl"...
#P"Macintosh HD:users:binghe:Lisp:packages:asdf:asdf.cfsl"
?  (pushnew "/Users/binghe/Lisp/usocket/branches/0.5.x/" asdf:*central-registry* :test #'equal)
? )
; Warning: Ignoring extra ")"  on #<LISTENER "Listener" #x5CDDE1E> .
; While executing: #<Anonymous Function #x5A52A9E>

? (asdf:load-system :usocket)

? asdf::*asdf-version*

As above test shows, I started a clean RMCL without ASDF and then manually compile&load ASDF 2.016.2, pushing only one system directory (as POSIX namestring) to asdf:*central-registry* and it fails to interpret ...

How can I debug this?
