I just filed this ticket:
Some time between version 1.10 and 1.11 the *echo-expression-to-listener* functionality of the "Editor Execute Expression" Hemlock command stopped working. This seems to be because writing to (HEMLOCK-EXT:TOP-LISTENER-OUTPUT-STREAM) inside the context of a Hemlock command is no longer working.
I started looking through the commit log (hooray git!) and found this:

Radically speed up IDE listener output and make it interruptible.
The IDE listener output is now double-buffered. Printing threads fill
one buffer, and the GUI thread empties the other.
To avoid me having to hurt my brain preventing deadlock, output from
the GUI thread to an IDE listener is dropped on the floor; you'll
never see it. Since it's unusual to output from the GUI thread to an
IDE listener (the default is the AltConsole, or, if you started CCL
from a command-line shell, that shell), this shouldn't be a practical
Which is awesome because 1307 was also driving me nuts, but I think this may have broken *echo-expression-to-listener*.
Is there no way to have our cake and eat it too?
