I remember this bug manifesting itself in SBCL and ABCL, so it wasn't 
specific to the "Ready Lisp" distribution, but never to the point of 
correcting it in the source:  one morning, after updating CVS it went 
away.  As to when in CVS HEAD datewise might be a little tricky, because 
of the "contrib split" that happened around that time (whereby a 
directory called 'contrib' is created under the main SLIME code, and all 
non-essential code is moved therein causing great havoc and gnashing of 
teeth, but eventually proved to be well worth it".  My advice would be 
to use the CVS version before the "contrib split", and diff the files to 
the image used in "Ready Lisp".

"A screaming comes across the sky.  It has happened before, but there is
nothing to compare to it now."
