Hi again Claude,

I asked Hugo on IRC if he ever figured out why he got this error, and
it turns out that CHICKEN has a bug in that its numeric parser relies
on C functions to convert strings to numbers, which means it's locale-
sensitive.  It shouldn't do that (because string->number isn't defined
to be locale-sensitive in the Scheme spec).


Can you check your locale environment variables, and see if resetting
it to the "C" locale works around the bug?
