I can't reproduce the bug with SBCL.  You probably run Stumpwm with
CLISP?  Maybe it's actually a CLISP problem?

BTW, I don't know whether it's wrong just in the e-mail but `ö' in your
string is encoded incorrectly, as a binary character.  Maybe it'd work
fine if you used UTF-8 environment.  (My Stumpwm on SBCL doesn't crash
even with the binary character, it just doesn't set the title in that
