It would seem to me that the following:
(PROG NIL (PRINC 'FOO) (FORCE-OUTPUT TYO) (PRINC 'BAZ) (CLEAR-OUTPUT TYO))
should send FOO to the terminal, force it to actually reach the terminal,
send BAZ to the terminal, flush output of BAZ, and return NIL to toplevel.
Thus FOO should always print, and BAZ will usually be flushed unless the
system is very busy and the output of BAZ wins the race over CLEAR-OUTPUT.
What actually happens is that neither FOO nor BAZ print.
Is this a bug? (I'm running LISP under :CRTSTY REMB under AMES-TIP)
