having problems with CCL and Mountain Lion. With this very recent version of CCL Version 1.9-dev-r15382M-trunk  strange things can happen quickly. 

In the listener eval:  (ccl::choose-file-dialog)

in CCL Version 1.9-dev-r15382M-trunk a dialog does come up but does not show the content of folders right away. Notice the Asynchronous Progress Indicator (bottom left):

It can take a long time and sometimes it will only show up after doing some further manual navigation.

Doing the same thing on the same machine with CCL 1.8 32/64 will immediately show folder contents.

Could this be connected to recent thread management changes? Is this - even more crazy idea - due to some bizarre sandboxing overhead? 

Can anybody with Mountain Lion confirm similar findings or have different experiences?
