There is your culprit: clear-system should NEVER be called within
perform. It's removing the rug under ASDF as it's running -- very BAD,
especially if there are many build phases. Unhappily, prove and other
prove-based system skeletons (e.g. from caveman) have made this
pattern popular. I sent patches to prove & al. at least six months
ago, and wrote about this anti-pattern in my "best_practices"
document, but I suppose the message didn't go around yet. Maybe I
should make it an error for clear-system to be called from within an
active asdf-session?

Stas, if you also use clear-system this way, you also lose for that reason.
