[slime-devel] Signal-driven IO in SBCL on non-Linux/x86

Have any of the SLIME developers tested the new signal-driven IO at all 
on non-linux/x86? It seems to be quite thoroughly-broken for me on both 
Darwin and Solaris: connecting will sometimes hang emacs, once 
connected messages sometimes need an extra newline to go through, and 
sending any input at all to the actual SBCL repl once connected causes 
a major SBCL hang.

Is this expected? Will it improve? I never had any problems with the 
old fd-handler approach.

Also, FWIW, it seems someone has changed slime.el such that 
slime-connect now attempts to connect to localhost no matter what host 
you supply.
