TCP streams are by default "bivalent" (capable of both character and
binary I/O.)  Back in the days before "basic" streams, this meant that
a TCP stream inherited both character and binary Gray stream methods
(STREAM-READ-CHAR and STREAM-WRITE-BYTE, etc.); with BASIC-STREAMs, we
try to do things like READ-CHAR and READ-BYTE without going through
method dispatch, and this now involves dispatch through the functions
in that large structure (of type CCL::IOBLOCK).  There was a bug 
(that should have been fixed about a month ago) wherein the :FORMAT
argument to MAKE-SOCKET wasn't getting passed down to the code
that actually initializes the functions in the IOBLOCK struture when
an active (:connect :active) socket was created, and this looks like
the same issue with passive sockets.

I should probably think about this harder (and think about file-sockets,
etc.) before trying to check things in to CVS, but I suspect that
changing the definition of MAKE-TCP-STREAM (in ccl/level-1/l1-sockets.lisp)
from

(defun make-tcp-stream (fd &key format ...) ...)

to

(defun make-tcp-stream (fd &key (format :bivalent) ...) ...)

will fix (this instance of) the problem.
