Thanks.  The report I had also said something about non-X3J13
compliance causing problems, but without any details.  I don't
know whether the above was an illustration of that or not.  (I'm
not _that_ well-versed in Lisp).  

Anyway, we're continuing trying to fix the problem.  (The
original problem is that an ECL-compiled function returns without
any result.)

BTW: any hints on debugging (e.g. function calls) apart from the
artisanal format(), print() and friends?

Many thanks,
