Hi Gary,

Hmm, I'm quite sure that's not the explanation, but I nuked
com.clozure.Clozure\ CL.plist just in case.  From what I can see, the
call to ensure-directories-exist (frame 0 in the backtrace) is quite
determined to write into the ccl directory, so (require :cocoa) is
bound to fail when ccl is installed in a read-only directory.

~$ ccl64
Welcome to Clozure Common Lisp Version 1.2-r9226-RC1  (DarwinX8664)!

(I'm trying to get the cocoa mcclim backend to its former state of
"only crashes after displaying a window, not before", but I'm a
unix-head and like to install things under /usr/local ...)

Cheers,

Rudi
