[slime-devel] Stopping swank server kills sbcl

Hi all,

In bash:

 # sbcl --core sbcl.core-with-swank
 This is SBCL 1.0.30, an implementation of ANSI Common Lisp.
 More information about SBCL is available at <http://www.sbcl.org/>.

 * (swank:create-server :port 49153)
 ;; Swank started at port: 49153.

 * (swank:stop-server 49153)

sbcl dies, which I obviously don't want it to.

My core includes the latest slime/swank from CVS, on a Debian (Lenny) box.

I need to be able to stop swank the server cleanly, whilst leaving sbcl running.

Is this a (serious) bug or am I missing something?
