        COMPLR is trying to load some file from lspdmp; which does
        not exist on AI.
    A new SHBDMP and complr dump is on its way now, to AI and ML.

    Apparently you changed the SHARAB init file to dump its
    result on SHBDMP instead of LISP?  This works fine on MC,
    but ML and AI don't have LSPDMP directories, and for the
    past year or so I've been :INSTALLing the dumps from COMLAP
    instead of rebuilding them on each system.
       In general, in the past, I've found the using links with
    sharab doesn't work -- the PURQIX file on LISP; may be linked
    to SYS;PURQIO because it is the built-in part of lisp's SUSPEND
    which finds those pages.  But SHARAB-dumped files need to know
    exactly where their parts are.
Well, foo, if you'd read your mail before installing you'd have know about
this.  I explicitly told you what I had done, and that there might be problems,
and so since you knew what was going on with this, you should figure out the
right thing to do and undo my changes if necessary.
