[slime-devel] win32 SLIME : long time and huge buffer to generate 100, 000 data items

I'm wondering if there is some way to tell SLIME to not try to report
all output  from the inferior lisp? My emacs buffer-menu shows the
slime-repl as huge and ever-growing:

     * *slime-repl sbc: 123816001  REPL

I'm building a huge data structure and need some way of SLIME sending
the command but turning off output from SBCL.

Here is the code that is taking a long time to run:

(defvar *datasize* 100000 "size of dataset")

(defun gendata ()
  (dotimes (i *datasize*)
    (let* (
	   (m (random (1+ i)))
	   (n (random (1+ m)))
	   (text (write (generate 'sentence)))
      (list :text text :m m :n n)))

(setf *d* (gendata))
