Yes but I do remember (in your machine ehe) that some error in the
Paredit hook made `slime-mode' not kick in. That would produce the
error, right?

Chitan should check if he can find those bindings in the *Help* buffer
generated by

   M-x describe-mode

When that command is run in a lisp buffer. He should find this there:

   Slime minor mode (indicator [swank allegro]):
   SLIME: The Superior Lisp Interaction Mode for Emacs (minor-mode).
   Full set of commands:
   key             binding
   ---             -------
   C-c C-c         slime-compile-defun
   C-c C-k         slime-compile-and-load-file
