There must be an error in the compiler which prevents it from handling errors 
that happen during macroexpansion. Both of your messages are related to it, 
and I got a few others while fixing definiline. I will look into it, but in 
case you dig into it, the bug must be located in the macroexpanders which 
happen to be in src/cmp/cmputil.lsp -- there must be some code for error 
handling missing.
