What platform?  What is the value of swank:*communication-style*?  I
routinely use serve-event in combination with slime and sbcl, so I can
confirm that everything should work correctly, at least if you use
:fd-handler communication.  Maybe you're on a threaded platform, and
slime's threaded communication is somehow blocking serve-event?  If
that's the case, the easiest solution might be to spawn a thread that
just calls into serve-event.
