Regarding this jumping from level 2 to level 1, does this mean that
the abort restart only kills the Lisp implementation if used at SLDB
level 1? I just know that hitting 'a' was ingrained in muscle memory,
so apparently it used to do what I expected.

Thanks. Last night after posting my admittedly hot-tempered message, I
consciously tried using 'q' instead and did find the similarity
described both by you and in Andras Simon's follow message to be nice
and logical.

Got it. I just need to unlearn the impulse to hit 'a'.
