Unfortunately I'm not familiar with slimv, but what do you mean by
"doesn't eval any lisp expression"? Can you do simple arithmetic
expressions, like (+ 41 1)?
Is the code that you've presented inside ~/.stumpwmrc?
Reading your code, I can see the `echo-string' procedure. Can you
confirm, right after stumpwm initialization, that "Starting swank. M-x
slime connect RET RET, then (in-package stumpwm)." has been echoed?
Maybe using C-t m, or the equivalent in your system.
