I have an application which requires that certain data be loaded from files 
before the user does anything else.  What I would like to do is pop up an
accepting values window before the top-level read-eval-print loop starts, but
after everything is displayed on screen.  I figured that the best way to do
this is to write my own top-level which does the prompting and then calls
clim:default-frame-top-level to start the REP loop.  However, it appears that
nothing is displayed in time for my accepting-values (:own-window t) to work
properly.  Does that mean that clim:default-frame-top-level actually displays
all of the panes and stuff like that?  Does that make sense?  Is there a way to
insert some initialization code between the displaying of panes and the running
of the REP loop?

If there is a better way to do what I need to do, can someone please let me
