I am not quite sure what the problem is but just in case you do need  
an UUID (from memory.lisp in XMLisp) here is a simple OS X way to do  
this:

;;______________________________________________________________
;; Universally Unique Identifier (UUID)                         |
;; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Universally_Unique_Identifier   |
;;_____________________________________________________________/

(defun UNIVERSALLY-UNIQUE-IDENTIFIER () "
   Return an Universally Unique Identifier (UUID). An UUID is an  
identifier standard
   used in software construction, standardized by the Open Software  
Foundation (OSF) as
   part of the Distributed Computing Environment (DCE)"
   (ccl::lisp-string-from-nsstring (#_CFUUIDCreateString (%null-ptr)  
(#_CFUUIDCreate (%null-ptr)))))
