    If I am compiling a file FOO and there exists a file called FOO FASL1
    the compiler acts very strangely, namely, it it types out a large number
    of CRLF's (this is with -T flag) and then exits, but does not write an
    output file.  If I do it with the T flag on, then it just says DOT CONTEXT
    ERROR.  If I rename the FOO FASL1 to FOO BAR, then the problem goes away
    and the file FOO > compiles successfully.

Foo, you are hacking me!  If you go to compile FOO >, you will be trying to
compile a fasl file, unless it's called FASL2, because FASL1 is what
:PRINT FOO > will get too!  Hardly a compiler bug.  Maybe an ITS bug.  I
haven't much of an opinion on that (rather, I have conflicting ones).
