There is a bootstrapping of CLOS that is initiated quite early in the
boot process, but if some method dispatch is triggered before this
happens, you get the above break. It usually indicates that something
"bad" or too "complex" happened too early in the boot process.

A stack-trace should tell you/us what is triggering the CLOS bootstrap.
