;;suspend(1); return read();
foo                   /* <- this is obviously getting trapped by the read() */
=> "foo"
[used 14954 ticks, 2 seconds.]
;;suspend(10); return read();
foo                   /* <- this must be being interpreted as a command... */

... called from built-in function eval()
... called from #57:eval_cmd_string (this == #141), line 18
... called from #57:eval*-d (this == #141), line 10
(End of traceback)
