Re: problem with 7-7 version: setfs inside with-slots

    I came across the following bug in testing the new (7-7) version of pcl in
    lucid common lisp 3.0:

    When using the with slots macro, setf's don't seem to get handled

This is the most interesting PCL bug I have worked on in a long time.
Read "interesting" as a euphemism for I am still confused about this.

Here is a temporary patch which should fix the problem.  It doesn't fix
it the way I would really like.  I hope to release a better fix later
today.  But this is pretty interesting after all so it may take longer.

;from boot.lisp

(defun expand-with-slots (whole specs body env gensym instance translate-fn)
    `(let ((,gensym ,instance))
       ,@(and (symbolp instance)
	      `((declare (variable-rebinding ,gensym ,instance))))
    #'(lambda (f c e)
	(declare (ignore e))
	(expand-with-slots-internal specs
