This one is a bit odd -- it seems like global resources aren''t getting initialized properly. If I run <LispCore>Next>FULL.SYSOUT without ''greeting'' (by deleting INIT.LISP from {DSK} and typing <return> at the prompt), and then load in {Phylum}<LispCore>Library>LOGOCLOCK.DCOM, it breaks with a ARG NOT PILOTBBT, NOBIND error. '
I find that the problem is that the call to \GETBRUSHBBT has a BBT argument of NOBIND. By the time I get into it, \\BRUSHBBT.GLOBALRESOURCE is NIL.'
I don''t know exactly what is going on here, but I assume this is a problem with the new global resource stuff. This is quite reproducable, so see me if you have trouble getting it going.'

Could be that we missed recompiling something thru a conspiracy of macros.  First thought is to try BCOMPLing ADISPLAY, which can then be loaded up in the current loadup to see if it that fixes the problem.'
Next thought is that there was some non-standard useage in ADISPLAY that our first findcallers missed (e.g. a RESOURCECONTEXT).  If that is the case, the fix is to simply extract from the RESOURCECONTEXT form.'
Unfortunately, I have to leave now and won''t be in again at least until tomorrow morning, and maybe not until tomorrow night.'

Disposition: Richard had edited ADISPLAY on 8-May-84 without haveing a current version of EXPORTS.ALL; result was that the globalresources defined on the file were output into the recompiled .dcom file with the old version  the globalresource facility.  I merely remade and recompiled ADISPLAY.  -- JonL 11-May-84.
