You need M-x customize-variable <RET> slime-net-coding-system <RET>:
set slime-net-coding-system to something like utf-8-unix.


What's described here is not a rare problem, and it would be great to do
something about it within SLIME. Negotiating the best coding system with
SWANK shouldn't be hard to implement: it's possible to change coding
system of a process in emacs after it's started.
