If you hit <return> at the "1. Break>" prompt and then go "abort" (or
any other command in the "help" list) then it seems to think that
you're trying to evaluate a symbol by that name.  However your output
doesn't show that so I can't help here.

EOF is a good way to go back up a level i.e. <Ctrl-d> in unix or
<Ctrl-z> in DOS or VMS (can't remember what it is in others).  I'm not
sure if this completely equivalent to an "abort" but it's much less typing!
