You have redirected the output to a file, but the input part of *terminal-io*
is still referring to your terminal. This is why `interactive-stream-p'
reports T.

You could redirect standard input from /dev/null, but unfortunately CLISP
does not know about /dev/null's special nature. (How do you tell that
a file descriptor is pointing to /dev/null when all you have is the file
