reuse of windows

Hi CLIMers,

I'm using the value of clim:*partial-command-parser* to read
unsupplied command arguments. The stream argument I give is a newly
created window, which I close when the partial command parser
returns. This works fine on my Mac but not on my partners Sun running
Allegro CL. I believe he has CLIM 1.1.

The problem is that the closed window stream mysteriously reappears
inside a clim:tracking-pointer, i.e. when running a
clim:tracking-pointer form we get an error because the stream (window)
argument is closed window. We never gave the closed window as the
stream argument, so I wonder how it got there. It looks like CLIM
reuses the closed window for some reason and then blows up since the
window is closed. I don't believe it's my fault since it works on my
platform (Mac 2.0/CLIM 1.0 (both beta)).

Any comments, suggestions?
