Oops, just found a bug.  Moving the cursor as the first thing breaks the behavior of these commands when executed in a listener window.  Here’s a fixed version:

; Make sure output is visible on macroexpand and eval-region
(defun fix-front-listener-cursor ()
  (easygui::running-on-main-thread ()
     (gui::front-view-for-buffer (gui::hemlock-buffer (GUI::TOP-LISTENER-DOCUMENT)))

(defun macroexpand-expression (expander)
    (let ((expr (with-input-from-region (s (current-form-region)) (read s)))
          (*standard-output* (HEMLOCK-EXT:TOP-LISTENER-OUTPUT-STREAM)))
      (multiple-value-bind (expansion err) (ignore-errors (funcall expander expr))
        (pprint expr)
        (format t "~& ==>")
        (pprint (or expansion (format nil "Error during macroexpansion: ~A" err))))
      (ccl::print-listener-prompt t))))

(defcommand "Editor Execute Expression" (p)
  "Executes the current region in the editor Lisp. Ensures the result is visible."
  (declare (ignore p))
  (let* ((region (copy-region (current-form-region))))
    (when *echo-expression-to-listener*
      (format (HEMLOCK-EXT:TOP-LISTENER-OUTPUT-STREAM) "~A~&" (region-to-string region)))
    (eval-region region)))
