Not too surprising, really. MEVAL1 is a Maxima function (defined in
so kill(all) kills it and then nothing happens.
I still think that somehow avoiding asksign & other interactive
queries would be a useful feature, but I haven't figured out how to do it.
The existing noninteractive package isn't really anything more
than a proof of concept; it has the desired effect in some cases,
but it's too easy to find examples for which it fails.
