I'm running org 9.4.4 and emacs 28.0.50, (both from source) on Debian 
testing. According to my notes in my init file I created the template in 
early July 2011, modified it slightly two years later. I do not recall 
any problems with it.

Just to  make sure that there is no problem with the timeslips template, 
at least on my system, I commented out all of the capture templates 
before and after the timeslips template and reloaded my init file. I ran 
org-capture (bound to C-cm). The timeslips came up in the dispatcher and 
it ran OK.

I notice that I was off by a key and typed periods and not semicolons in 
the two lines "some capture templates," and, "some more capture templates."
