Yes, that's true.  The problem is that the `abort' restart is
established by CLISP's native REPL and is "below" the SLIME event
loop. So if you invoke the restart, you jump out of the loop and SLIME
stops responding to events.

The usual way to exit from SLDB is with `q' which to invokes the
`abort-request' restart.

I added some cleanup code in the CVS version, so that the connection
gets closed when the event loop terminates.  Emacs will then display a
message saying that the connection is closed.
