This is really weird.  Before the July 3 CVS, SLIME hanged for me when calling
FFI (using LispWorks 4.4.5 Personal Edition), but with the July 3 CVS, I can
call foreign functions just fine from SLIME.  This is with a DLL that was built
with MS Visual C++ version 6.0 and MinGW, both built with default options, and
not doing anything different than I had before.

I'd like to see this stay fixed :)
