This looks like it was submitted over a month ago -- did you get a response on your Cleanup Problem before?'
I think this is an artifact of the RECOMPILEDEFAULT=EXPRS which was the default in the standard sysout we had released at the time of your message; basically, RECOMPILE got confused if you recompiled things ''by hand'' rather than by cleanup, because it was using the fact that something was interpreted and not compiled as a signal to recompile it.'
We''re setting RECOMPILEDEFAULT=CHANGES in new releases, which at least gets rid of this confusion.'

When cleaning up a file, not all the functions that have changed are recompiling.'
What I did was load up a file that redefined several functions I already had in my system.  I then made one small change to one of the functions in the file and defined one new function and added it to the file.  I then compiled the old function and tested it.'
I then cleaned up the file, and the function that was changed was not recompiled, but the new function was.  The old one did appear in the list of changed functions': (CDR (GETPROP filename ''FILE))'
This has happened several times.'
