[Openmcl-devel] Problems with openMCL slime and Aquamacs (Mac OS X)

I am having problems with slime, running openMCL (clozure common lisp  
or "ccl") and Aquamacs. I am very new to lisp, having started with it  
in September 2009. I confess that analyzing this error is beyond my  
current ability with lisp.

I do not know whether this is the best place to ask for help or not;  
perhaps I should be on the slime or asdf mailing list. I have searched  
the archives for this mailing list, but saw only a few relevant posts,  
which did not help me. As I am new to this mailing list, kindly advise  
if I should be seeking help elsewhere.

I am getting (seemingly) random failures  when I load slime in  
Aquamacs. It works fine about half the time. The other half the time  
it reports various errors. As far as I can tell the problem always  
arises when ccl tries to load asdf.

The intermittent nature of the failure makes it difficult to  
understand (for me, anyway). Here are some examples. (Perhaps I should  
have captured the entire backtrace...if so I'll post more later):

========

I get these errors whether I use the latest asdf.lisp (from the asdf  
site) or the one that comes with ccl.

I am running OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard. I re-installed all relevant  
pieces (Aquamacs, slime, and openMCL/ccl today to make sure I am up to  
date. This did not help. I get the same problems whether I use 32- or  
64-bit versions of ccl.


I have this version of ccl/openmcl:

	ccl: Version 1.3-r11936

I have the Oct. 22 build of slime, downloaded from the Aquamacs site.  
When slime loads correctly it shows this in the slime-repl buffer:

	; SLIME 2009-10-21

I have Aquamacs distribution 1.9.

Is there a known problem with this? I see that there have been some  
issues from time to time in the past that may be related, but my  
googling attempts to sort it out did not reveal anything informative.
