[Openmcl-devel] Clozure CL 1.9 released

If this kind of testing had produced a bug report that said something like:

"Given the following code (which is distilled from code in the HTML-ENTITIES
project), calling INIT-HASHES in [certain versions of CCL on certain platforms]
causes a spurious TYPE-ERROR to be signaled", then yes, I'd care about that
a lot.

In this particular case, it probably wouldn't have been too hard to generate
such a bug report from the test results you posted.  (Knowing that "linux-x86"
meant "32-bit Linux-x86" would also have been helpful.)  In other cases, it might
have been much more difficult to identify and/or isolate a bug.
