(adjust-array <whatever> 0 :fill-pointer 0)

You are correct that this was a CLtL2 change. On page 456 it says:
"If the :fill-pointer argument is not supplied, then the fill pointer
of the array is left alone. It is an error to try to adjust the array
to a total size that is smaller than its fill pointer."
