You can get rid of all typeout by the garbage collector by setting
the variable SI:GC-REPORT-STREAM to NIL. It was originally intended
that the default value of this be NIL, and only those who were interested
would turn it on. Anyone with an opinion about what the default should
be, send me mail.
You can also set SI:GC-REPORT-STREAM to the value of TERMINAL-IO evaluated
in a Lisp listener, to make the messages go to that Lisp listener. Don't
set it to the value of STANDARD-OUTPUT; that won't work because it simply
indirects through the value of TERMINAL-IO in the current environment.
