I believe that some bugs were fixed in rducon in the not-too-distant
past. Please try it again with the cvs version or 5.16.0 when it
becomes available (a week or two from now).

linearalgebra loads several Lisp files. Try this, it might show some
foo : ["polynomialp", "mring", "lu", "linalgcholesky",
"eigens-by-jacobi", "linalg-extra", "matrixexp", "linalg-utilities"];
:lisp (dolist (f (rest $foo)) (load ($file_search f)))
By the way, the Debian packages are constructed by someone else,
so I don't know what might have changed.

If I remember correctly ssearch was recently modified to return
false instead of triggering an error.

My only guess is that the old version was using GCL or something
other than Clisp. From what I have seen running Maxima with Clisp
is much slower than with other Lisp varieties.
