   I have had several problems with the new beta test version.


   2. The new with-slots* does not work when new name bindings are spedified
   for slots.  For example:

   <cl> (defclass foo () ((a)(b)))

   <cl> (defmethod foo-vals ((self foo))
	      (with-slots* (a b) self (list a b)))

   <cl> (defmethod foo-vals ((self foo))
	      (with-slots* ((foo-a a) (oo-b b)) self (list foo-a foo-b)))
   Error: Attempt to take the car of A which is not a cons.

   3. I also have the following error which occurs on a trivial defmethod at
   the end of a long pcl file (which compiles fine under the August
   version of pcl):
    ->(ERROR "Received signal number ~s ~@[(~a)~]" 11 "Segmentation

Sorry, problem #2 was a red herring.  It only occurs after I have
gotten the segmentation violation error, #3, in the running lisp
