FWIW, I have made some progress: Corman Lisp's (user-homedir-pathname)
happens to return a pathname with a file component, ie:
- the directory part is \Users\
- the file part is Didier
As a consequence, calling PATHNAME-DIRECTORY on it returns C:\Users\ and
the source registry becomes C:\Users\.config\common-lisp\source-registry.conf
(the actual user homedir is missing).
This is easily fixed with a Siebel-like PATHNAME-AS-DIRECTORY function.
However, I ran into a bunch of other problems after that (such as the
lack of a TRANSLATE-LOGICAL-PATHNAME function).
So given what you're saying above, I think I'll just give up.

Well, I can always modify the envelope of my emails :-)
Resistance is futile. You will be jazzimilated.
