I don't know where the bug is at this point.  It certainly could be in CCL.

The person who reported what seemed to be the same problem on IRC said that
they thought that the problem was with a contributed SLIME/ASDF module.  I
generally dont like or use SLIME and don't know exactly what that means (I
suppose that I could figure it out ...); if you do know what that means, it
might be interesting to see if their theory (that that module caused the
problem) is consistent with what you see.

Other than that ... I think that the first step for me is to try to reproduce
the problem, and if I can't do that fairly quickly I'll probably start
flooding this list with SLIME beginner's questions.
