Hello Helmut:

Thanks for the reply. I see that the fixes you made correct all of the 
errors I was experiencing when running the test script.

For some reason I don't understand, however, I had to download a new 
copy of slime twice before the test would pass. I failed to note the 
errors on my first attempt, but just deleted the entire slime directory 
and downloaded it again. The second download evidently succeeded because 
the tests ran without problems. Is there a CVS command or a checksum 
arrangement that will verify that the current download has been done 
correctly? Sorry for my ignorance...
