Yeah --- that information is used by the debugger.

To suppress it, I guess one could either strip such annotations
from existing stuff, or prevent the annotations to begin with.

To prevent the annotations, try this:

:lisp (defun add-lineinfo (x))

before loading stuff. Does that help? I didn't try it.

Maybe someone wants to invent a function to walk an expression
and strip out the debugging info.
