thank you from the prompt answer!
Yes, this was with CLISP.
This is on a computer with no Lisp system whatsoever previously
I just said "apt-get install stumpwm" and `apt-get' installed `CLISP'
along. I was a little surprised, since I was expecting 'SBCL' to be
installed, but decided to play the naïve user who just wants to try

It's really four chars there: a backslash followed by the number 366.
The buffer coding system is UTF-8.
In retrospect I think that `\366' is not correct, now that my `~/.emacs'
is UTF encoded. It's a reminiscence of the time the encoding was
Anyway, my opinion is that `stumpwm' (or `CLISP') should not crash.
Not showing the char or cutting the window title off would be OK IMHO.
If `stumpwm' plays better with SBCL maybe the order of the dependencies
could be changed so that SBCL is prefered over CLISP. Now (Version
2:0.9.8-1) it reads:
Depends: clisp-module-clx | cl-clx-sbcl | cmucl-source, cl-ppcre
