My guess would be that this particular case is because of
insufficienties of BEGINNING-OF-DEFUN, i.e. not really a problem of
Slime. That's just what you get with a parsing engine based on regexps.

A solution is simply not to start lines with opening parentheses, for
instance by prepending a backslash ("\(" is equal to "(".)

The Solution is to use Climacs.

In your case, I'd suggest indenting the examples; it's good style
