using Clozure Common Lisp Version 1.4-dev-r12474M-trunk...

The IDE is much improved; thank you to the contributors.

A couple nits:

1. Using the IDE "Check for Updates..." menu item seemed to hang -- is  
there no timeout? I traced it to CCL using the svn program in /usr/bin  
rather than the newer version I'd installed in /usr/local/bin. Adding  
this to my ccl-init.lisp fixed it for me:

(setenv "PATH" (concatenate 'string "/usr/local/bin/:" (getenv "PATH")))

2. Using incremental search (C-s) extend by word (C-w) command with  
the insert point in front of, e.g., "*code-to-keysym* (make-hash- 
table" the first C-w selects "*code" the second C-w selects "*code-to"  
and the third C-w selects "*code-to-keysym" whereas I would have  
expected "*code-to-keysym*"; the next C-w selects "*code-to-keysym*  
(make" which would have been fine if the third C-w did what I  
expected. Maybe there is an incremental search command to move forward  
a lisp form (like C-M-f) that I am overlooking?
