Hi,

What is the standard behavior when closing a file stream with :abort  
set to T?

Am I interpreting the hyperspec incorrectly when it states:

"If abort is true, an attempt is made to clean up any side effects of  
having created stream. If stream performs output to a file that was  
created when the stream was created, the file is deleted and any  
previously existing file is not superseded."

Clozure CL seems to leave the file completely intact.
