Really, heap corruption does worry me a lot more than the force_output
thing. force_output just calls fflush() or does nothing. It is a
completely harmless function and the reason why you had problems with
slime is because it was being called on an input stream. So there must
be something else going on with the windows port. Really, I have never
seen ECL become unstable in other platforms -- at most it gets slower
because of memory consumption, etc--.
