"If you are using Windows and taking advantage of the default search
path for the configuration and/or source-registry, then mind that this
path has just changed in incompatible ways. If you have configuration

$LOCALAPPDATA/config/common-lisp/. Meanwhile your cache will be moved
from $LOCALAPPDATA/common-lisp/cache/ to
