(This is the wrong place to ask that question.)

It does _not_ always work out OK if you just say `y' here. It depends on
whether there were "protocol" changes between the Emacs and the Lisp
side.

The way to resolve is to restart your Emacs instance. Might make sense
for the Slime people to add an M-x slime-reload command which reloads
the Emacs side.
