It turns out "with-traps" is not the requirement.  The problem appears
to be that the (debug-enable 'debug) and/or (trap-enable 'traps) has
to be at the top level.  If I do these from within (statprof-reset)
which is the initialization function, they don't work.  If I do them
from the top-level, things work fine.

I think so.

Ahh, so traps are reset after the evaluation of each top level form.
That's good to know.  I don't think it's been an issue yet, but
perhaps later...
