I don't see anything in setup.log.full that looks relevant.
I upgraded setup.exe from 2.510.2.2 to 2.568 to no avail.

Maybe in my copious free time!  (I did download the source,
in case I get in the mood.)

I was in the process of doing this when I had the idea of
seeing whether CLISP version 2.41-2 was visible when "Hide
obsolete packages" was unchecked, so I cancelled, but by then
version 2.39-2 was already uninstalled.  Unsurprisingly, this
ended the weird behavior.  I couldn't figure out how to
reinstall version 2.39-2 to try my experiment (unchecking
"Hide obsolete packages" didn't reveal it) so I just went
ahead and installed version 2.41-2, which of course was my
original goal.  This new version does indeed solve the
problem discussed in the thread starting at:


Thanks to Reini for that.

That makes sense, because my installed version (2.37-1) was
pretty old.  I thought it was listed in the setup.ini of the
mirror I was using, but checking now I see it isn't, which
presumably means my "Hide obsolete packages" idea wouldn't
have worked anyway.

Thanks everyone for your help.
