I haven't found the leak yet -- any hints would still be appreciated.

:    (trace ((:method dispose (container))))

: to step through the code in the method.

Subsequently, I re-visited MCL 2.0 Release Notes and found the following:

   (trace ((:method foo (specializer)) :step t))

Sorry for taking up bandwidth with my question on trace.
