Operator error :-(.  You nailed the problem down:  I have

   :pserver:anonymous at common-lisp.net:/project/ecl/cvsroot

in CVS/Root, but somehow managed to convince myself for a long time that I
was updating from the SF repository.  I can confirm that a fresh copy
from CVS repo from SF has passed the testcase, and an ECL-based
OpenAxiom is progressing past the point where it would have failed.

Sorry for the confusion.
