AHA! I think I understand what the original problem was. CLISP seems to be
reading the terminal in what I call "raw" mode, that is, including
keystrokes like <backspace>. Depending on where I edited the load command
with <backspace> characters, I could get CLISP to return all sorts of error
messages, including the original one I mentioned.

So given that, what can I do about the real bug above? And if anyone else
uses CLISP, what's going on with input editing?
