Deleting the call to flush breaks the existing semantics of the package.
You are welcome to define that as "fussing over edge cases".

FLUSH was probably a function defined in CCL.

Calling FORCE_-OUTPUT is a correct change.

Alternatively you could call the function StreamFlush()$LISP
which is already defined in interp/unlisp.lisp.
