 There might be a miscommunication here. This ticket is reporting a new

 The problem of having to manually uninstall and reinstall maxima after
 sbcl update is an old problem. I believe it's reported in multiple tickets

 The new problem is that doing that (uninstalling and reinstalling maxima)
 no longer works. I was not using maxima for a few months, so I just
 encountered it today, with

     `sbcl @1.1.2_0 (active)`
