Guile tells you :)

  scheme@(guile-user)> foo
  ;;; <stdin>:7:0: warning: possibly unbound variable `foo'
  ice-9/boot-9.scm:1685:16: In procedure raise-exception:
  Unbound variable: foo
  Entering a new prompt.  Type `,bt' for a backtrace or `,q' to continue.

This [1] thingy coming next is the new prompt. So typing ,q gets me out
of it:

  scheme@(guile-user) [1]> ,q

I'm not deep into that, but as far as I understand, the job of this
prompt is to keep information around about what went wrong, so you
can inspect it (e.g. with ,bt).
