well,  I'm not really talking about 'buggy' in the sense that there
are a lot of lisp exceptions.  lisp has a wonderful debugging environment
that works well inside of mcl.  What I am taling about are the apparant
mystery crashes that happen for no apparant reason,  why a program
crashes on one machine and not another,  the mouse freezing, why
version 2.0 crashes every time with the even-better-buss-error init
distributed at ftp.apple.com.  unexplained mouse freezing,  that sort of
thing.  These things simply should not happen!
