I can reproduce this on linux by calling sys:call-system with any
executable it cannot find. And it works fine when gc monitor isn't
running. Quiting gc monitor during the freeze helps too.
I don't really know how to approach this problem, and whether it is
the slime problem at all.

With best regards, Stas.
