What command were you executing? The debugger trace shows that you used
`M-x' to execute a command - was it `byte-compile-file'? What file were you
byte-compiling? That `condition-case', with `act-on-choice', points to file
`icicles-mac.el' as the file being compiled. However, I don't see any end of
file problem in that file, and I have no trouble with `M-x byte-compile-file
icicles-mac.el'. What is the update number of your file `icicles-mac.el'
(it's in the file header)? What happens if you try just this in a virgin
Emacs session (emacs -q): `M-x load-file icicles-mac.el' - do you get an
end-of-file error? What version of Emacs are you using?

It's possible that `icicles-mac.el' was corrupted when you downloaded it. I
just checked, and the file is OK on Emacs Wiki. You might try downloading it
again. Then, try first to just load it, without byte-compiling, to see if
you get an error. Then try byte-compiling it again. Let me know if you still
have a problem.
