David, first of all thank you for the report.

I haven't looked yet at it in details, but is there any upstream bug
opened, maybe with a patch that can backported to SBCL-1.0.17?  In that
case the fix can be easily applied to the version already present in
lenny and then the migration will be smoother.

On the contrary, if backporting the fix is not so trivial, let's see if
the RM accepts a new source upload for lenny.

Thx, bye,
Gismo / Luca
