[slime-devel] Inpsecting a variable in the lisp SLIME debugger

I am trying to inspect the value of a variable at a determined breakpoint.
Here is my simplified code:

(defun foo ()
   (maplist (lambda (var)
       '(a b c)))
slime goes into debugger mode at this point. So I try to eval by pressing
either the ":" or the "e" key and then I type "(car var)", but slime keeps
on saying:

The variable VAR is unbound. [Condition of type UNBOUND-VARIABLE]

I am confused as to why it's saying this since "(break)" is within the
scope of "var".
