[slime-devel] bogus Error: "Local socket address already in use"

I just updated slime. I get the following error:

CL-USER(1): (swank:create-server :port 6666)
Error: "Local socket address already in use" (errno 98) occured while  
creating a passive socket on port 6666 .
   [condition type: SOCKET-ERROR]

Restart actions (select using :continue):
  0: Return to Top Level (an "abort" restart).
  1: Abort entirely from this (lisp) process.

Two things:

1. I am running a reverse ssh tunnel on port 6666
2. After taking the default restart, the connection actually works.

I had no problem with a previous version. This is in allegro.
