62          written to the most significant part of a byte.

80        - The stream created by WITH-INPUT-FROM-STREAM was not properly
81          closed.
82        - SXHASH was returning different values for -0f0 and -0d0 for
83          compiled and interpreted code.  The both return the same value
84          now.
85        - Some issues with potential spurious floating-point exceptions
86          with complex arithmetic on x86 with SSE2 have been fixed.
87          (Random junk in unused parts of an sse2 register could cause
88          spurious FP exceptions.)
89        - Numeric contagion for complex + real and complex - real was not
90          done correctly in compiled code.  Proper contagion is now done
91          by converting the real to a complex before performing the
92          operation.
93        - CMUCL can now handle the X11 local Unix display connection on
94          Mac OS X.
95        - SETF-SLOT-VALUE-USING-CLASS-DFUN no longer signals errors when
96          checking the new value against the declared slot type when the
97          declared slot type was too hairy for TYPEP.
