#271 closed defect (fixed)

No error for unknown defclass class options

? (defclass erroneous-class.13 ()
   (a b c)
? (make-instance 'erroneous-class.13)
#<ERRONEOUS-CLASS.13 #x300044399DDD>

The spec says a program-error is required for unsupported options. This may have been augmented by the MOP, I don't know. But in any case, some indication of a problem should be given at some point.

After a little poking about, it seems like the problem is this method:

 (defmethod initialize-instance :before ((class class) &key &allow-other-keys)
  (setf (%class.ctype class) (make-class-ctype class)))

The &allow-other-keys in this method causes keyword arg checking for class objects to be disabled. I wonder it it would be worthwhile (or even allowed) to treat methods that have &allow-other-keys without &rest as not disabling initialization arg checking.
