In the REPL, when I press the <tab> key without having started a identifier (you know, for completion), I get the following message :

[1]> You are in the top-level Read-Eval-Print loop.
Help (abbreviated :h) = this list
Use the usual editing capabilities.
(quit) or (exit) leaves CLISP.
[1]>

Then, Whatever I do, clisp gets busy (like really busy : takes 100% of my CPU), and I need to kill -9 it from outside.

FYI, I'm using clisp 2.48 on a Gentoo. (Compiled with libreadline support)
