[slime-devel] Unicode character misbehavior?

I discovered a way to crash Slime by compiling a simple sexp containing a
string. Here are the conditions:
1. Connect to a running SBCL via swank (M-x slime-connect).
2. Cut and paste the sexp below containing the smiley-face into a lisp
3. Compile the fragment.
That's it. When I do this the inferior Lisp process is terminated "by
(let ((dangerous-string "This is a smiley-face: ☺"))
(print "Important safety tip: don't do this."))
I normally only work with UTF-8 characters, and my ignorance of handling
other character sets is probably the culprit here.
What should I do if I want to enable slime to work with strings like this?
