I have been complaining about this problem for a while now. The only answer I
got was something like: 

It is runing here on 7.2...

I did not have time to spend trying to fix this problem (which is pretty
anoying because you have to reboot the Lisp Machine) so I gave up. But if
anybody around can tell us what's wrong with St Patricks Day release on Lisp
Machine it would be very kind.

Thanks in advance.
