Description: '
(OVERFLOW T) causes break in Lafite.'
Ah!  I did (LAFITE ''OFF) (LAFITE ''ON) and this time it broke': (ITIMES broken).  The OVERFLOWing number this time is -1909571701.'
Aha!  After all that flaming about problems with LaFite, I decide to do a DIR.  Blows out with OVERFLOW, (ITIMES broken).  Looking at the stack backtrace it''''s somewhere in RANDSET.  Now do you believe me that (OVERFLOW T) is a bad idea, Larry?'
