I am now on holidays, and can only check this against my private copy 
of the CVS tree. Nevertheless, it seems to work for me. I mean, I     
tried things like (load ".compile.lisp"), (load                       
"/home/jlr/.ecls.lisp"), etc, and they all work with ECL as of 0.9b.  
Have you downloaded it from                                           
I just noticed that the link from "Distribution" on the home page, to 
a tarball is broken: it points to an old copy of ECL. Please download 
the above mentioned version.
