I do not get the same as you. Are you calling TOP-LEVEL from somewhere in
your code?

(c:build-program "foo-st" :lisp-files (list x) :epilogue-code '(progn
(cl-user::main) (quit))))

Furthermore I'd like to ask about the frequent freezes via

If it was a known problem I would have worked hard to solve it :-) Does it
happen in ECL or in your standalone program? It may be that 1) the stack
limits are too small (See http://ecls.sourceforge.net/new-manual/ch20.html)
or 2) your program has an error and you did not set up a proper handler
around the main routines in your program (lacking an error handler ECL may
get crazy trying to restore from a problem)
