In System 78.30, ZMail 38.5, Local-File 30.4, Experimental DAEDALUS 29.1, microcode 837, 78.28 Daed 29.1, on Lisp Machine Two:

This can probably be fixed by reloading Local-File, whose current
released version is 32. I've marked Local-File 30. obsolete, which it
evidently is. If this doesn't solve your problem, send more mail and
I'll try harder.
It's also due to the fact that somebody (me) recompiled REMOTE, and
therefore 78.31 is behaving totally differently than before. I thought
it was taboo to load files from patch files, for this reason.
Unfortunately, sometimes it's just too convenient.
How about the convention that any files loaded by patch files be copied
into the patch directory, where they're safe from recompiling damage?
