I'm sorry I don't know. I thought the Clojure people forked Slime, and
presumably would reintegrate upstream changes as their time allows. But
you seem to be bitten by updating your CVS checkout.

Does the clojure stuff provide an implementation of the necessary
backend for autodoc? If so, the API changed. If not, do not use the
slime-autodoc contrib with clojure.

What are the last rpc expressions in *slime-events*?
