I tried to check whether closure-html really produces infinite loops in the
type propagator but I am unable to even start building it. It seems they
have some bogus pathnames there, because I get (with the new error rmessage
in CVS) something like

Condition of type: SIMPLE-ERROR
Pathname without a physical namestring:
:DIRECTORY (ABSOLUTE Users jjgarcia quicklisp dists quicklisp software
closure-html-20101006-git resources dtd)
:NAME Entities-Latin1

Could you verify? It is unsupported to have :unspecific components in

Instituto de Física Fundamental, CSIC
