It should be possible to call swank:simple-break to get SLDB back.

A problem is of course the very unfriendly session management of SBCL's
debugger.  E.g. it doesn't even print a message that the debugger is
waiting for the session.  It's also a bit pointless that the debugged
thread needs a terminal session when it doesn't even access the
terminal.  That's the case when the debugger does all I/O over SLIME's
