1. With Slime and SBCL you need essentially use simultaneous versions 
(ones from roughly the same time-period) -- SBCL developers are rather 
fond of refactoring interfaces even when that breaks backwards 
compatibility. Essentially latest released SBCL should work with Slimes 
from the release date to a month or so forward, and CVS HEAD SBCL should
work with CVS HEAD Slime -- all bets are off for in-between versions.

2. Since the issue seems to be with the the SPAWN-communication style,

  (setf swank:*communication-style* :fd-handler)

in ~/.swank.lisp should work around that particular issue.
