Thanks! But the fact remains that you're still using an escape key:
a single keypress that has to be caught by Stumpwm before it will read
what follows. It doesn't seems like which particular escape key you're
using should matter.

Arch just updated SBCL to 1.1.15, and the problem seems significantly
better, though I'll want to give it a few days to see. I swear it wasn't
my imagination!
