The complaint is that when you get an error during loading a file,
*PACKAGE* is generally bound by the debugger to something like CL-USER,
The same thing also happens if the user uses IN-PACKAGE interactively to
change his default package rather than the :Set Package command or
This also bit me for many, many months. Programming only in Common Lisp, I
used 1in-package0 for package switches in my source files. I'd love to see the
debugger 2not0 reset the package.
All you, and probably Barmar too, are arguing for is having 1in-package
0behave like 1pkg-goto0. I see nothing wrong with that.
