OK, so what is the problem with CMUCL that means it can't use
read-sequence here?  I know it used to be broken (did partial reads)
but I thought that was fixed ages ago.  Can we not report this as a
bug to the cmucl developers?

Thanks for cleaning up my other mess.  Now I have to look through your
structure stuff and who-calls, see what I can steal for sbcl :-)
