The same problem is true of --load.  Putting the same infinite-output loop in a separate file and loading it using --load has no effect, but loading it from the REPL results in the expected output.

I've written a server that I would like to start automatically when MIT Scheme starts.  I'm trying to automate this using the --eval command-line option, but the thread that the server starts seems to exit right away -- or at least to get no time slices.  The same thread, started from the REPL, works just fine.

I've tried a simpler example that just starts an infinite output loop, with the same results.  See the attached file for an example.  I've also tried experimenting with the first argument to `create-thread' and with removing the use of `detach-thread,' but without success.

I'm trying to figure out why --eval has this behavior, but haven't had any success.  I'd be grateful for any hints.  I'll keep working on this in any case.
