Given that it's non-deterministic, there's the possibility that the
cache clobbering Gary talked about may be due to multiple accesses from
threads.

Could you try putting (setf swank:*communication-style* nil) into your
~/.swank.lisp (which makes Slime not use threads), and see if you can
reproduce the problem?
