1) update to the current trunk, especially including the changes to nfcomp.lisp
  in r13745.  Rebuild the image with these changes in effect.

2) In a new image, note that

? (ccl::next-binding-index)

returns a value likely > 13000, then call REMOVE-EXTRA-SYMBOL-BINDING-INDICES
and do a full/clean rebuild.  Quit and load the (new) new image.

3) In that (new) new image, (ccl::next-binding-index) should return ~900.

  • Status changed from new to assigned

Several current trunk binaries already have this correction, I believe. There are a few that haven't, which I'll update when building 1.6 binaries (if not sooner).

(In [14394]) Linux x86[-64] images, without ridiculously high symbol binding index values. (See ticket:709)

comment:3 Changed 9 years ago by rme

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from assigned to closed

Checked in updated linuxx8632, linuxx8664, and win32 images.

(ccl::next-binding-index) should produce a value in the low 900s to low 1000s in all images now.
