JONL, your recent change to ERRCK broke almost the entire
extended LISP system, including VECTOR, DEFVST, and FORMAT.
I have de-installed your change.
Actually, the change to ERRCK was right; several other files
had bugs in them, but VECTOR, DEFVST, and FORMAT weren't among
them(!!). SUBSEQ was one that had a bug whose manifestation
was formerly inconsequential, until I fixed the defaulting problem
with ERRCK, as per report by BIL:

SI:REPLACER is broken in te current version of SUBSEQ.
(TO-VECTOR '(1 2)) => #(), likewise for TO-LIST, etc. . .
I've fixed SUBSEQ, and several other files which used the
function SI:CHECK-SUBSEQUENCER in ERRCK. The difficulty arose
because CHECK-SUBSEQUENCER etc weren't documented, and there were
inconsistent usages of it among the several files. I've put documentation
for it into NIL;NEWFUN > under section 2.6.
