Specifying (integer -10000 10000) or fixnum seems not to be enough. I read http://www.sbcl.org/manual/Modular-arithmetic.html - this doesnt seem to work for multiplying, and it only holds for sbcl - but on the other hand, it is about a very old version of sbcl, maybe it meanwhile has gotten better.
