Hi Bart,

you are not providing the "directory" argument to tsdbdump, which should 
result in a message "parse_options(): expecting name of grammar to 
load", but the lisp code seems to catch the top-level exception that was 
thrown (which was not thrown in the previous version) and so the message 
doesn't make in onto the console. I don't know what to do about this, 
since i don't know how to prevent ecl from catching my C++ exceptions.

Maybe some ideas out there?
