Broken in the latest SLIME (as of this morning) for CMUCL 18e and XEmacs:

Error in function CREATE-INET-LISTENER:
   Error binding socket to port 0: Cannot assign requested address

  0: [ABORT] Return to Top-Level.

Debug  (type H for help)

; File: target:code/internet.lisp
(ERROR "Error binding socket to port ~a: ~a" PORT (UNIX:GET-UNIX-ERROR-MSG))

I think the problem lies in this line in swank.lisp:

(defun open-dedicated-output-stream (socket-io)
  (let* ((socket (create-socket *loopback-interface* 0))

I am not sure why *loopback-interface* is not initialized or something...
