One night on IRC, antifuchs worked out this for me:
(add to your emacs defaults)

; fix [] in slime
(add-hook 'lisp-mode-hook
          (lambda ()
            (slime-mode t)
            (modify-syntax-entry ?\[ "(]  " lisp-mode-syntax-table)
            (modify-syntax-entry ?\] ")[  " lisp-mode-syntax-table)))
