I have isolated it to the use of a particular macro (mine, not CCL's)
in that file.
If I stub the macro out so that it does nothing, the bizarre size
increment goes away.
There is now only one SIMPLE-FIXNUM-VECTOR in the heap, and it's tiny.
I have a hunch the instability probably won't reproduce either.
The macro isn't recursive or anything silly like that. I don't
see how it could lead to several huge fixnum vectors being produced
at macro-expansion-time, let alone destabilization.
Thanks for the hints. I will drill into this further.
