We have another vn-cclan mirror: ftp://www.aarg.net/pub/cclan/. Prompted by this encouraging result and the hope that it presages more to come, I hacked at telent.net's CCLAN redirector so that now you can get rid of your earlier choice and select another without having to fiddle around with cookies.txt or something

I found something that I'm reasonably convinced is an actual SBCL bug while rebuilding on OSF/1. interruptmaybegc establishes that the gc trigger has been hit. It clears the trigger, calls the Lisp function MAYBE-GC. MAYBE-GC calls SUB-GC, which if GC-INHIBIT is set, returns immediately without resetting the trigger - which it would have done had it actually GCed. So, after that we cons until we run straight off the end of dynamic space. I fixed it by making interruptmaybegc check whether a GC had happened, and resetting the trigger itself if it hadn't, but I think that's probably more of a kludge than a fix.
