before saving an application you should do:

(setf *fast-eval* nil) ; turn off compiler

otherwise lisp will try to compile any eval expressions,
and since the compiler isn't there you'll certainly have problems.


(setf *compile-definitions* nil)

so that you can modify code even when in an application.

Sorry if this is obvious to some, but it took me a while to realize
that these were needed. I have no idea why this isn't automatically 
done by save-application.
