I figured out why I was experiencing this issue.  It was a user
issue... sort of.  The behavior *is* reproducible but it wasn't a newly
introduced bug (though it may be a bug).

The difference between Guile stable and master experiencing the bug:
I hadn't compiled Guile master with readline, so I disabled readline
support in my ~/.guile file.  Thus, the behavior "mysteriously" also
started hapening in stable as well after this.

Once I re-enabled it, the problem went away.  So I guess hooking up
readline somehow prevents this blocking prompt, though why, don't know!
