Hi.  I'm an occasional slime user.  I got a new computer and wanted to
set up sbcl and slime.

I'm running Ubuntu 11.04, and the Ubuntu versions work.  So naturally I
uninstalled them and installed from source.

With slime on my load-path, and

(require 'slime)

in my init file, and inferior-lisp-program set to the binary, M-x slime
doesn't quite work right.  The *inferior-lisp* buffer starts up, swank
says it's starting (I see the compilation) but the repl buffer never

I do eventually get the "Connected." message, but I never see the repl

What am I missing?

Thanks very much!
