Dear Faré,

with, clisp-2.49 and clisp-git(*) passed test-logical-pathname.script for me.
With, clisp-git continues to pass test-logical-pathname.script for me, but clisp-2.49 now fails.

As far as I can tell, that’s because previously part of the test was disabled for clisp and is now unconditionally enabled.

I just want to make sure that this was intentional and known. I don’t know if functionality probed in the relevant part of the tests is crucial in order for ASDF to function but this might mean that clisp 2.49 can no longer be supported. If so, I would drop it from the list of platforms I’m testing with.

PS: I’ve switched to another machine since I last compiled the list of supported platforms and the issue I had with clisp-git is gone now.
