  Hi there,

I think there's a bug in CLOS in this release. Consider the following
file contents:

(defclass test-class (standard-class)

(defclass test ()
  (:metaclass test-class))

compile-file works fine with the previous versions of CCL (I was using
the 1.1 svn branch), but with the 1.2 svn release, I get this:

; loading system definition from /usr/local/share/common-lisp/systems/asdf-binary-locations.asd into #<Package "ASDF0">
; loading system definition from /Users/didier/share/common-lisp/systems/cl-rcfiles.asd into #<Package "ASDF0">
; registering #<SYSTEM :CL-RCFILES #x300040F4976D> as CL-RCFILES
Welcome to Clozure Common Lisp Version 1.2-r9226-RC1  (DarwinX8664)!

? :pop
? (quit)

... which I believe is incorrect behavior

Thanks !
