Behaviour differences between interpreted and compiled code can have the
following reasons:
- Macros which destructively modify the code being interpreted or compiled.
  Evil. You can detect this using CLISP binaries which have IMMUTABLE
  support built in.

Compiled code uses less stack space. Maybe your code is deeply recursive.
Find out like this: interrupt just before you get the stack overflow
message, and look at the stack using the Backtrace commands.
