hash tables, make-load-form bug?

Reported by: jared Owned by:
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: Compiler Version: trunk
Keywords: hash tables, make-load-form, chunga, quicklisp Cc:



I believe there may be a problem with the latest CCL trunk. The problem occurs when I try to load the :chunga library from a recent Quicklisp distribution.

The attached script can be used to recreate the problem.

Here is the error and a backtrace:

   [package chunga]..
   > Error: Special operator or global macro-function CCL::NHASH.MIN-SIZE can't be FUNCALLed or APPLYed
   > While executing: #<CCL::STANDARD-KERNEL-METHOD MAKE-LOAD-FORM (HASH-TABLE)>, in process listener(1).

   > Type :? for other options.

It appears that this is provoked by the Chunga file known-words.lisp, found in:


I don't see that this file is particularly doing anything strange, so perhaps there is a CCL problem?

I notice that MAKE-LOAD-FORM has been changed recently:

svn blame:
     6         gb (defmethod make-load-form ((hash hash-table) &optional env)
     6         gb   (declare (ignore env))
 10731         gz   (let ((keytransF (nhash.keytransF hash))
     6         gb         (compareF (nhash.compareF hash))
     6         gb         (vector (nhash.vector hash))
  2584         gb         (private (if (nhash.owner hash) '*current-process*))
 16340         gz         (lock-free-p (hash-lock-free-p hash)))
 16340         gz 
     6         gb     (flet ((convert (f)
     6         gb              (if (or (fixnump f) (symbolp f))
     6         gb                `',f
     6         gb                `(symbol-function ',(function-name f)))))
     6         gb       (values

Script to provoke the bug

comment:1 Changed 5 years ago by gz

Does it still fail if you rebuild ccl twice?

comment:2 Changed 5 years ago by jared


Wow---after rebuilding twice the problem goes away.

I'm quite surprised that this fixed the problem, I would have thought that

  (rebuild-ccl :full t)

would have sort of "fully compiled" CCL.

Should I generally do two full rebuilds whenever I upgrade?


comment:3 Changed 5 years ago by gz

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

(wontfix because it's just a bootstrapping problem)

Yes, it is recommended to do rebuild-ccl twice to ensure all bootstrapping issues get resolved. This should be documented somewhere though I can't immediately find where.

Adding keywords ccl ql quickload ccl:nhash.min-size hunchentoot in hopes that this shows up the next time I hit this problem and search for a resolution.
