[Geiser-users] Graceful handling of long lines in the REPL

Hello Geiserati!

One problem I regularly stumble upon is that if you inadvertently write
a large data structure in the REPL (say, (iota 10000000)), Emacs has a
hard time displaying it and gets slower and slower, to the point where
hitting C-c C-c in the REPL buffer has no effect other than displaying
“C-c” after some delay.

The workaround is to kill the REPL buffer (and associated process)
before Emacs becomes completely unusable–which is inconvenient.

Any ideas how to fix that?
