[slime-devel] Strange startup behaviour

Hello all,

I've been banging my head against this for a couple hours and haven't
been able to figure out the problem, so I humbly ask for help or a
pointer to the right place to ask:

I'm attempting to run the current CVS SLIME with SBCL When I
hit M-x slime in emacs, compilation notes stream by, and then all
action stops with the message:

Lisp connection closed unexpectedly: connection broken by remote peer.

Here's the weird part. If I start sbcl in a terminal and load up swank
manually, connecting with M-x slime-connect from Emacs, everything
works fine. I can't find anything enlightening in the *Messages* or
*slime-events* buffers - it just quietly dies.

Any ideas?
