   I have also tested without the style argument, without 
*use-dedicated-output-stream*, and with neither.

   Well, I double-checked by temporarily replacing the copy that wasn't 
in the bundle with a symlink to the copy that was (suitable for testing 
but not deployment).  I also cleaned out all the .dfsl files in 
~/.slime/, in case any of them were stale.  So they should be running 
from the same directory tree now.  It still gave the same error.
