| I'm using cvs slime and sbcl 0.9.16 (same problem on sbcl 0.9.13) on  
| mac os x/ppc. Every time I edit an .asd-file the swank server  
| disconnects with the following message
| ";; swank:close-connection: end of file on #<SB-SYS:FD-STREAM for "a  
| constant string" {11732F19}>"
| Is there a way to fix this? Is this behaviour normal?

It is certainly not normal.  I don't see this, running the same
software on the same platform.  Does it happen when you open the asd
file, or when you actually perform an edit on the open file?  If the
latter, does it happen no matter what you do to the file, for example
modifying a comment, or does it happen while changing code?  Recall
that changing code may cause communication with the sbcl, in order to
inquire about function arguments et cetera.  I guess even opening a
file with an (in-package :foo) will cause communication with the sbcl
concerning the existence of a package named foo.  So there is plenty
of stuff that could go wrong.  Maybe you can find a clue in the
*slime-events* buffer after things broke.
