The bug was probably introduced by a recent change having to do with
how unused slots in package hash tables are represented.  I thought
that I'd caught all of the functions that were sensitive to/aware of
this, but may have missed at least one.

I checked in a bunch of recent changes to CVS; I'll do a couple of
full bootstrapping cycles (and may do a few more checkins), and will
reply to this message when the dust has settled a bit.

More dust will likely be kicked up soon after, but I think that there's
some light at the end of the tunnel.
