[Openmcl-devel] Probe-file returns a file, load fails!

I'm trying to load a file specified by a logical pathname. Probe-file 
returns an existing physical pathname:

> 1 > (probe-file #4P"eksl-utils:source;load-preferences.lisp")
> #P"/Volumes/Users/gwking/CVS/CVS/utils/dev/load-preferences.lisp"


But when I try to load the file, I get an error:

> 1 > (load #4P"eksl-utils:source;load-preferences.lisp")
> > Error: File #4P"eksl-utils:source;load-preferences.lisp" does not 
> exist.
> > While executing: "Unknown"
> > Type :POP to abort.
> Type :? for other options.

The translations are as follow:

> 2 > (logical-pathname-translations "eksl-utils")
> ((#4P"EKSL-UTILS:eksl;**;*.*.*" #P"utils/dev/**/") 
> (#4P"EKSL-UTILS:source;**;*.*.*" #P"utils/dev/**/") 
> (#4P"EKSL-UTILS:binary;**;*.*.*" #P"utils/dev/bin-ppc-openmcl/**/") 
> (#4P"EKSL-UTILS:ktibinary;**;*.*.*" 
> #P"utils/dev/bin-ppc-openmcl-mac-KTI/**/") 
> (#4P"EKSL-UTILS:appearance;**;*.*.*" #P"utils/dev/Appearance 
> Manager/**/") (#4P"EKSL-UTILS:contrib;**;*.*.*" 
> #P"utils/dev/contrib/**/") (#4P"EKSL-UTILS:lift;**;*.*.*" 
> #P"LIFT/DEV/**/") (#4P"EKSL-UTILS:**;*.*.*" #P"utils/dev/**/"))

I doesn't seem to be a case problem (and shouldn't be anyways, AFAIK):

What I have done wrong!

Many that live deserve death. And some die that deserve life. Can you 
give that to them? Then be not too eager to deal out death in the name 
of justice, fearing for your own safety. Even the wise cannot see all 
ends.
