There should be a ARANEIDA:*TRAP-INTO-DEBUGGER* which you can set to T,
and if it's T araneida's DEBUGGER-HOOK should invoke its old value
(which is passed along side the condition in fact.) This is
application's domain, not something we could do much about.


PS: That said, with SBCL you could place

  #+sbcl (setf sb-ext:*invoke-debugger-hook* swank:swank-debugger-hook)

into your ~/.swank.lisp to overwrite any application-specific
