[Openmcl-devel] clobbered compiler/runtime, but what could it be?

There was a bug (<http://trac.clozure.com/openmcl/ticket/285>) which
kept APPLY or FUNCALL of #'CALL-NEXT-METHOD from working when
OPTIMIZE (SAFETY 3) is in effect.

That was fixed in other branches and the bug was closed, but the
fix never seems to have made it into the 1.2 tree.  It should
be there now.
