I'm not sure if my problem is related to the one above, but I'm not able 
to run xemacs, slime (version 1.2.1 or the cvs head (as of 10 jan 06)), 
with clisp 2.35.

However, when I try to run slime, it fails more brutally. It gets to the 
[1]> prompt and then right after I get a "Process inferior-lisp 
segmentation fault". I'm running on OS X.

But it all works fine in emacs.

The slime "PROBLEMS" file mentions sometimes clisp needs to be invoked 
with "clisp -K full" but I can't find any elisp variable or 
customization setting that lets me set command line arguments to the 
lisp process.

Anyone run into this problem? Is slime broken on xemacs/os x?
