It’s not as bad as you think.  Assuming Gail’s diagnosis is correct (and I have no reason to doubt it), this should fix the problem.  Cleaning up this bit of horribleness:

                      (unless *format-arguments*
                      (when *format-arguments*

is left as an exercise.

This line of code is especially egregious because if ASDF encounters an error when it’s loading files and the user tries to restart in the CCL IDE, the “Missing Argument” error throws to the AltConsole and recovery is basically impossible, because the error happens in the drawing of the restarts GUI window.
>> Since I have no idea how the Common Lisp pretty-printer is supposed to work (and I’ve tried to read the documentation several times), I can’t tell if this is an error in ASDF or an error in CCL’s #'format implementation. I have been working around this by modifying compatfmt to get rid of the pretty-printer gobbledygook on CCL (that’s what compatfmt is for, after all), but if this is really a bug in CCL’s implementation we should probably fix it there.
