I have encountered a problem with
the Fred-window-function (set-window-filename). Namely,
(ask window (set-window-filename "string")) causes an error:
NIL is not a correct argument to ::CCL%string-length (approximately).
However, the filename attached to the window is correctly set to
"string." Somehow, I think I am doing something wrong, and that it is
not a bug.
The new filename which you pass to SET-WINDOW-FILENAME should be
a complete pathname. That is, it must include both a directory
and a file. "string" has a file, but no directory.
Granted, the error message could use a little work. . .
