I just started teaching Lisp to third year students and of course, they
are all trying to install Slime on their laptops.

One has a problem on a MacBook Pro (Lion) that I was unable to solve so far.

He is using
  slime 2009-09-06
  GNU Emacs 22.3.1 (i386-apple-darwin9.8.0, Carbon Version 1.6.0)

If anyone has an idea of what the problem is, I would be very grateful
for your help.

PS: The *inferior-lisp* buffer looks like that:

(progn (load "/Users/enguerrand-petit/slime/swank-loader.lisp" :verbose 
t) (funcall (read-from-string "swank-loader:init")) (funcall 
(read-from-string "swank:start-server") 
:coding-system "iso-latin-1-unix"))

This is SBCL, an implementation of ANSI Common Lisp.
