Disposition: This is a bug in SINGLEFILEINDEX. It is reasonable that MAKEFILE process the options in the order given.'

I haven''t seen any warning messages on this; perhaps you want to send one to LispFriends↑ and include it in the documentation':'
If you have SINGLEFILEINDEX loaded and your CLEANUPOPTIONS contain LIST before the compiler specification, rather than after, you will die a horrid death as the listing process and the recompile compete for the source file (death = at best a file not open error; at worst, a bad Leaf handle).  Fix is to make your options be, say, (RC ST LIST) rather than (LIST RC ST).'

Right, Henry Thompson and I discovered this one yesterday  -- yet another manifestation of the Only One Stream On a File limitation.'
In lieu of any expectations for multiple-streams, I guess that documenting the limitation is the best we can do.'
