    Can you point to a reference that explains the issue (e.g. mailing 
list thread or ... something on the R bug tracker or ... ?)  I do know 
that there's an issue with df of random-slopes models which is 
illustrated under "Df alternatives" at 

  I wrote some code (linked from the above discussion, available from 
https://bbolker.github.io/mixedmodels-misc/R/calcDenDF.R ) ; it uses the 
same kind of "semantic"/containment method, nothing with a quantitative 
basis like Satterthwaite/etc., but it does do a somewhat better job on 
random-slopes models. (I'm sure it could be improved.)
