I know I'm running UTF-8 - My .emacs sets it that way on startup:

(setq slime-net-coding-system 'utf-8-unix)

Perhaps I worded the situation incorrectly. What I'm trying to say is that  
I can repeatedly crash Slime when I start it this way:

M-x slime-connect <RET>
Host: <RET>
Port: 4005 <RET>

where it is connecting to a running Hunchentoot webserver complied with  
swank listening on that port. If I then cut the following from this email:

  (print (char-code "☺"))

, paste it into the REPL:

CL-USER>  (print (char-code "☺")) <RET>

it kills Slime instantly. But not the webserver. I can reconnect by  
repeating the slime-connect sequence.
