I've committed a new workaround for these deadlocks to Slime -- this
time touching code only in swank-sbcl.lisp, so hopefully it can stay
in this time. :)

The root cause in SBCL is due to be fixed soonish as well, but even if
that happened yesterday it would still be a pity if decently new
SBCL's could not be reliably used with slime-repl from CVS HEAD.
