There's quite a lot of interesting stuff in the mail archives if you 
look hard enough 8^)
A hint to the solution to my problem would appear to be contained in:

     http://clozure.com/pipermail/openmcl-devel/2003-May/000456.html

Have I missed a searchable archive interface? If not, it would probably 
be useful to have one...

Sorry for the number of messages...
