circular structures and bin files

Symbolics cannot handle the following in a compile-file.

(defun foo () '#1=(#1#))

This will fail complaining that bin files cannot handle
circular objects. We create circular objects all over the
place in our data structures and need to write them out.
Symbolics customer service recommends that we un-circularize
the objects first. Ha.

Does anyone have a fix for this behavior?
