[slime-devel] mode line error reporting

I have what seems like a simple question that neither the docs nor the  
web have answered: my mode line seems to have some sort of error  
reporting feature, where the mode indicator reads Slime[package,  
ccl{1}], with this number in curly braces representing how many errors  
of some sort I've racked up.

I can't for the life of me figure out what these errors are, where I  
can see further details, and how I can get that number to go away.  
More irritatingly, when I'm editing Lisp source, Slime has taken to  
flashing the {1} for an instant every time I type characters into the  
buffer. It appears for an instant, then disappears immediately.  
Presumably I've got a non-fatal misconfiguration somewhere that I  
don't know about, but this is very distracting. Can someone point out  
what's going on here? I'm using emacs CVS on Mac OS X (PPC), ccl  
version 1.4-dev-r12553-trunk and the last change in my slime CVS  
changelog is from 2009-08-04.
