Yes.  1.3a's osx-key-mode introduced a new binding for cmd(/apple) 
+e.  Because this is a minor mode that you will usually want enabled,  
this binding will take precedence over the one set in CM's cm.el.

A quick, dirty way to settle this inconvenience is to rebind slime- 
eval-expr to an unused shortcut key in your .emacs file:

(global-unset-key [(alt e)])
(define-key slime-mode-map [(alt y)] 'slime-eval-expr)

Or you can change cm.el accordingly.
