Not immediately sure _why_ you get this, but adding 

 (setf *terminal-io* (make-two-way-stream *standard-input* *standard-output*))

to your .sbclrc will probably fix things. In current SBCL *terminal-io*
is an io stream opened on /dev/tty, which apparently causes some
confusion. (This is likely to change fairly soon.)
