I did additional testing to determine how the code in Swank affected the problem. The error happens during in the call (compile-file src :output-file dest :print nil :verbose nil) in a file loaded into an ECL runtime either on the device (iPad) or a device simulator on a Mac. Even the simplest (defpackage :foo) form in the beginning of the file to be compiled provokes the error. Binding *print-readably* NIL before compile-file makes no difference.
