I _guess_ from your information-challenged bug report that "cl" is a shell
script that starts the Lisp image somehow, and which uses $* or an unquoted
$@ to invoke it with all the arguments given to the shell script.  $@ must
be quoted to be useful in such shell scripts, as in "$@".  (this seems the
only explanation that is consistent with the bogus fixes you have made.)

the Emacs interface to Allegro Common Lisp has been working for years.
