test-clean-load is supposed to prove that no warnings of any sort are
emitted while loading ASDF as source code, that are not otherwise
emitted by the implementation when not loading ASDF. Such messages are
not just an aesthetic disgrace, but an actual nuisance in some
situations (rarer now that implementations come with a proper ASDF if
you just (require "asdf")).

Somehow, one of these tests may be failing to exit properly.

moving, subsidize it. — Ronald Reagan (1986)
