That's a different issue; their code defining itself before it calls itself.
Your problem seems to be their code redefining the underlying system and thus 
breaking it.

I haven't done anything with CLOSette myself, but I would guess that it only
works in a Lisp that doesn't already have CLOS.  You can easily create such
a Lisp using packages; just define a package that uses COMMON-LISP but
shadows all the CLOS symbols such as SLOT-VALUE.
