I seem to have evidence that the Lisp machine or the Chaos network lost
an entire word (four characters to be precise).  The QFASL for AMORD;LMTMS >
somehow defines a function TMS:MAKE-RADICTION-NAME.  The only occurrences
in this file of RADICTION-NAME are as substrings of CONTRADICTION-NAME,
and the only place such a definition could have occurred is by the 
characters "CONT" being lost when compiling the form (ACCESSFN CONTRADICTION-NAME).

I happened to discover this while doing an APROPOS, but I bet I would have
been quite mystified had I been running a program whose source apparently
defined a function, but whose compilation did not.  Is there no good way
to tell that an error has occurred when lossages like this happen?
