This is why I posted to Lucid "support" is too slow for
people under the wire. They have patches for known bugs that they
won't release to us unless we go through the agony of tracking down
the existing bug, writing a test case, and submitting it. I was hoping
someone would run this through their bug-recognition pattern matcher
and save us the bureacracy.

People interested in the success of CLIM should pay attention to
complaints like these and do something instead of being defensive.

(Scott, I know it's not your problem, you just hit a hot button.)

See comment (above) -- write-string is unusable due to the prior bug.
