running lisp with other people's inits

    Why is that the following loses
    :l direct;
    ... while
    :l direct;direct lisp
    works fine?
It is looking for the filename DIRECT;KEN LISP or DIRECT;* LISP. I know
it doesn't adhere to conventions we all learned growing up but it is in
adherence to the new hsname-init scheme and is reasonably maleable to what
you need. Just rename DIRECT;DIRECT LISP to DIRECT;* LISP and you'll win
with :L DIRECT;
