Well, the backtrace indicated that a thread was indeed waiting for
terminal input, and the :Y command behaved as if nothing was waiting.
One (strong) possibility is that the thread is waiting for access to
a different stream than the listener is trying to yield.

WITH-TERMINAL-INPUT tries to acquire access to

(two-way-stream-input-stream *TERMINAL-IO*).  Does a thread spawned
by SLIME have the same value of *TERMINAL-IO* that the initial listener
has ?
