[slime-devel] asdf-install kills slime

I was just going to try asdf-install for the very first time, and it
turns out to kill slime.  Or more precisely, my lisp and emacs both
die (sbcl, GNU Emacs, slime from CVS as of

So to get some more information, I tried again from the
*inferioir-lisp* buffer (see beneath my signature, below).  I figure
the problem is with the debugger trying to print a string containing
binary data, and somehow not using the UTF-8 encoding to do it.

I have this charset specification in .emacs:

(setf slime-lisp-implementations
      '((sbcl ("sbcl") :coding-system utf-8-unix)
	(cmucl ("cmucl") :coding-system iso-latin-1-unix)))

PS.  This is the wrong place to ask I know, but can anyone throw any
light on the GPG message about "key id 0xNIL ()"?

This is SBCL, an implementation of ANSI Common Lisp.
