I wasn't even aware that C-M-a pushes the mark.  C-M-a is bound to
slime-beginning-of-defun in contrib/slime-editing-commands.el.  If you
don't load that contrib you get the plain beginning-of-defun that pushes
the mark.

The problem seems to be that slime-beginning-of-defun calls
beginning-of-defun as subroutine but beginning-of-defun only pushes the
mark after inspecting the this-command variable to see if the command is
called beginning-of-defun.  Maybe using call-interactively would help.
