I keep getting this error in SLIME/emacs/AWS EC2

Anyone familiar with this?  If I try again and again, it goes away and 
all works well until the next time or the time after that.

Here's a longer backtrace:

Debugger entered: (("Error in timer" slime-attempt-connection (#<process 
inferior-lisp> nil 2) (file-error "make client process failed" 
"connection refused" :name "SLIME Lisp" :buffer nil :host "" 
:service 57918)))
   (condition-case data (apply fun args) (error (debug nil ...)))
   slime-timer-call(slime-attempt-connection #<process inferior-lisp> nil 2)
   apply(slime-timer-call (slime-attempt-connection #<process 
inferior-lisp> nil 2))
   byte-code("  H H\" " [timer apply 5 6] 4)
   timer-event-handler([t 20156 46072 822713 0.3 slime-timer-call 
(slime-attempt-connection #<process inferior-lisp> nil 2) nil])
