The "pipelined request" message is printed when SLIME issues a new
request before the previous one is answered. Sounds like the Abort to
SLDB has not really aborted.

Does this happen for all errors, e.g. (error "foo")? Just to check if
it's an error in a restart handler..

I wonder if there is some SIGINT-like way to force CLISP to enter the
debugger on Windows? It would be good to know where it is stuck.
