Thanks to a suggestion from bill@cambridge.apple.com I played around with
save-application and got things back to normal.  It turns out that
(save-application "CCL 2.0b1p3" :init-file "Init") was causing it to look
at the root of my file system for the init file under system 7, rather
than in the ccl directory (as in system 6).
(save-application "CCL 2.0b1p3" :init-file "ccl;Init") put things back to
normal, but I still don't understand why upgrading to sys7 made a difference.
