Stephan, have you had a chance to look at these SBCL fixes?

In the meantime I've created a temporary branch(let) in the LKB CVS 
which allows the fixes to be merged against current code. This branchlet 
encompasses the following CVS directories:



1. obtain current source code (LKB+tsdb) from CVS:

cvs -d :pserver:public at lingo.stanford.edu:/lingo/CVS co lkb

2. merge in fixes from the 'sbcl' branch:

cd lkb
cvs update -j sbcl

3. start SBCL...

sbcl --dynamic-space-size 500

4. and run the code:

(load "general/loadup.lisp")
(pushnew :lkb *features*)
(compile-system "tsdb" :force t)

- Ben
