y-or-n-p mistakenly assumes that the after the reply the new line has
began. This is the correct assumption when the output is terminal: the
reply must be terminated by a newline. But when clisp runs under
emacs, the answer might be sent through the comint-send-string and it
will never appear in the buffer where clisp runs and thus the cursor
will remain on the line with the question and the next message, if it
is not preceded by (fresh-line) or a ~& format directive.
Therefore I suggest that y-or-n-p (as well as yes-or-no-p) should run
(fresh-line) after they have received the answer.
