The old definition is now considered obsolete. The one in
"ccl:interfaces;quickdraw.lisp" conforms to the definition in Inside Macintosh.
You can safely install the old definition in your world in one of two ways:

1) Put the old record definition in your code somewhere
   (ensuring that it is evaluated before any uses of it are compiled).

2) Replace the definition in "ccl:interfaces;quickdraw.lisp" and evaluate
   the form (reindex-interfaces).
