I see this output when running 5.15.0 official release on Windows XP
compiled w/ GCL, I forget the revision, maybe 2.6.8pre.

I see this output with 5.14.0 official release on Windows, and
5.15.0cvs (various Lisp versions including GCL 2.6.7) on Linux.
The prompt output appears to be governed by *NEED-PROMPT*
in src/mdebug.lisp. cvs annotate claims the relevant code has not
changed since 2005.
I can't tell what's going on here. My only guess is that GCL is
treating the input stream differently.
What does build_info() report? Can you try the same operation with
5.15.0 on Linux? (If you're using Windows; otherwise vice versa.)
