Seems 4.4.1 is doing fine after I reverted some changes from MPIR back
into GMP. The tests are also running fine and should pop up in
http://ecls.sourceforge.net/logs.html in a couple of hours.

As I told David, there will be a new release, probably before the
beginning of next week. You can use that in the spkg instead of the
unstable sources. I would like, though, that some developers of Sage
keep a copy of the unstable tree so that I can quickly answer back
with fixes to the problems you may find, giving me back your feedback
on those builds.

Ooops, ECL now implements a better type propagator, which has detected
an error in the following function

(defun queue+p (nd lab)
  (cond ((null (setq *db* (+labs nd)))
[...]        (t
         (iorm *db* (logior +lab-high-bit+ (unlab lab))))))

Based on this definition

(defmacro iorm (cell n)
  `(rplaca ,cell (logior (car ,cell) (car ,n))))

the second argument to (IORM *db* ...) should be a cons, not an integer.
