I believe I've fixed all the open/close store problems for the CLP  
lisp-only data store.  The store now properly opens and closes and  
passes all tests except the cursors-based tests as mentioned earlier.   
I made an exception for gensyms.

The snapshot and restore is slow, so opening and closing a database  
can take quite awhile.

- The system does not currently make any concurrency guarantees.
- This was about a two day hack in total, the code reflects this haste
- No performance optimization has been done and there are many  
opportunities for
   improving the performance of the system
- However, performance is already on-par with the BDB backend!
- I can't guarantee to support non-trivial bug fixes any time soon

Anyway, take it out for a spin and let me know what you think.
